David Widgington is an undisciplinary artivist interested in our shared oppositional cultural heritage. He is working on a trilogy of transmedia installations to explore Victor Turner’s 3-phase ritualistic performance theory, of which the first was exhibited during the Encuentro in 2014. He is a long-time media activist, archivist and engaged decorator.
Solidarity Banner for La Comuna de Pedro Aguirre Cerda
David’s performative gesture of solidarity between Montréal and Santiago is expressed by the collaborative creation of a protest banner with passersby on the streets of La Comuna de Pedro Aguirre Cerda. As a prototype performance for his larger video installation project Sous le pavé la rage, it will test two of many possible diversities of tactics.
