Site-specific live art and installations on the streets of Cork from Sample-Studios member and Studios of Sanctuary resident, Seiko Hayase.
Creepy Parade is a street performance where five performers and live Irish pipe musicians wearing ‘brain hats’ explore how emotions stuck in the body might look if one day they chose to go out on the street and dance with others.
Egg – Collection Of Emotions is an installation representing a collection of released emotions. With the evolution of technology and ‘instant’ connections, every second in the world billions of emotions arise that are born and disappear – where did they go? And are they waiting for us?
Seiko, based in Mallow, Co. Cork since 2018, is a member of Sample Studios. She works with painting, sculpture, installation, and collaborative projects. Her aim is to develop work not bound to specific materials and form, as well as finding a socially engaged voice in her artwork. Her practice explores a “world in between – researching how to share emotions with society.”
