Part of Dance International Glasgow 

Please note this durational performance will take place in our front gallery at various times between 2 - 6pm. Details will be announced nearer the date of the event.

As part of Dance International Glasgow, and on the opening weekend of her solo exhibition, Korean-Canadian artist Zadie Xa will activate her immersive, subaquatic exhibition environment ‘Child of Magohalmi and the Echos of Creation’ with a multimedia performance featuring Iris Chan, Jia-Yu Corti, Mary Feliciano and Yumino Seki. 

Xa brings together imagined and learned Korean folklore, transforming diasporic knowledge into new realities. Within her immersive world, she presents an origin story inspired by Korean creation myths, centered on the giant goddess Grandmother Mago (Magohalmi). Exploring the passing down of ancestral knowledge through matrilineal social structures by way of atmospheric lighting, surround-sound and large-scale video projections, with live performance and percussion. 

The work is developed in collaboration with Benito Mayor Vallejo.
It runs until 15 December.
