Our work 'Fragments' is made in collaboration between Katsura Isobe, a dance artist, and Jairo Zaludua and Nicola Green, printmakers. Originated from two short stories: 'The Yellow Wallpaper' by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and 'The Diary of a Madman' by Nikolai Gogol, Jairo and Nicola have created a serious of prints that are variations and developments from a single picture of a girl. These are seen as slide projections during the performance and also as a print out on a large transparent sheet. The printmakers have also played with the actual text from the stories, which are fragmented and have since deviated away from their original meanings. This is seen on the prints on the cylinder -shaped paper curtain as well as the paper strips worn by the performer. Katsura, the performer, is an inhabitant of the psycho-physical world created by Jairo and Nicola. The performance is about the journey towards untouchable place, where the viewers see only fragments of things.
