Practices – Sup Kwan Sup
Practices explores the boundaries between the sacred, the profane, the habitual and the ritualistic. How have divine gestures such as mealtime prayers become mundane, while television series are followed with an almost religious obsession? Have these new customs become our modern spirituality? Jacques Poulin-Denis probes into the Korean culture to explore how such practices act as anchors in our lives.
The LIG Arts Foundation in Seoul invited Jacques Poulin-Denis, accompanied by dancer Caroline Laurin-Beaucage, to create the piece Practices with a team of Korean artists and collaborators during an 8-week residency.
