Performative Tour – It Will Walk Itself Off
Alongside the exhibition The Precious Stones, Danielle Alhassid will be conducting a series of performative tours in the urban environment, to raise questions about the narrative of a place. Through the act of touring, Alhassid creates a conflict within the guide, between the hegemonic story of a given place and her personal story, between the seen and the hidden and between truth and fiction. She questions the meaning of the act of touring the urban environment, asking what exactly is the role of the guide and to what truth is she committed? In the tour, the guide is drawn to a truth that is different from the historical one, a truth anchored in personal experience and invisible layers.
