ABRAR AHMED

PARTICIPATORY PERFORMANCE LOCATION: WALLED CITY
DURATION: 30 MINS

Abrar Ahmed’s performance centred around the interpretation of common symbols present in day to day life. He played on different interpretations of ‘#’ as either a hashtag or a game of knots and crosses, marking public places with this symbol to see whether people took it as an invitation to play. This performance explored how meanings associated with such a symbol change over time or across context.
