எப்பொழுது(Eppolutu) translated in English means “When”. எப்பொழுது(Eppolutu) is a re-interpretation of the original performance titled “Walking without Boundaries” which was not allowed to be performed at the Singapore Biennale 2016. The work addresses the past histories of Indian convicts being transported to Singapore as labourers during the British occupation. As of today, their contributions are not recognised as part of our national story.
My question about the banning of the performance is not “why” but “when”. That is, “when” can I be allowed to perform the work again? So, I took a blood oath to mark my body as a calendar every day till the day I am allowed to perform the work.
எப்பொழுது a re-interpretation of the work Unwalked Boundaries (Singapore Biennale 2016)
It has been 2590 days 19 hours 19 minutes 15 seconds as today. I am still waiting for when can I perform “Unwalked Boundaries”.
