Performance

In 2020, we traveled miles to celebrate thirty years together. This intergenerational bonding separating us will be our guide in this work, titled FatherDaughter.

In the performance FatherDaughter, Florencia Sosa Rey builds on a reflection about the circularity of relationships with the other. FatherDaughter connects two bodies, structured by the action of running. This work implies a gesture of endurance based on a familiar and familial complicity between an artist and her athlete father. The performers engage in exploring the sustainability of rhythm, in a posture of listening and playing.

This event is organized alongside the exhibition Yayoi Kusama: DANCING LIGHTS THAT FLEW UP TO THE UNIVERSE, presented at the PHI Foundation from July 6, 2022 to January 15, 2023.

Curator: Victoria Carrasco

Biographies

Florencia Sosa Rey
Through a multidisciplinary approach anchored in a corporeal sensibility, Florencia Sosa Rey interrogates the socio-cultural history carried by her body and the objects surrounding her in order to explore the notion of trace. Her work is articulated through drawing, performance, textiles, and collaborations. Between 2015 and 2022, her personal and collaborative work has been presented in Montréal, Québec City, Toronto, Indiana (USA) and Iceland. In September 2022, she will complete a creative residency in Catamarca, Argentina. She has won several grants, including a Canada Council for the Arts Research and Creation Grant in 2021. She holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University and is based in Tiohtià:ke/ Mooniyang/Montréal. 

Florencia: Papi, si escribo una pequeña biografía de vos, unas frases no más, ¿que te gustaría que esté incluido? 

Hector: Que tengo origenes indigena.

Hector Sosa
Hector Sosa was born in Argentina where he lived until the age of 29, at which point he emigrated to Canada with his team, his family. Over the course of his life, he cultivated a profound love for physical activity and competitive sports. Through teaching, his vocation, particularly in underprivileged communities, he dedicated himself to social engagement, sharing notions of discipline, strategy, and surpassing oneself. Due to discriminatory immigration policies and the subsequent non-recognition of skills, it is now in his free time that he devotes himself to what makes him grow: sports, the outdoors, and his family.
