This is a project of reusing existing ruins.
Location : Ruins of Nettleham Hall in Lincoln.
The project aims to create a spatial experience in an architectural performance space through moving lines and visual arrangements.
By continuing the spatial division and story of the historical site, the viewers will simultaneously assume the roles of audience and performers in the space. Through the transformation of identity through bodily perception, as exploration deepens, they will understand the historical stories within the space. As you embark on this journey and pause at the intersections of sight, observing through the gaps, this place will redefine the possibilities of performance.
The core concept focuses on continuing the spatial narrative of the historical site. Revolving around the reuse of the story, in this case, the story and spirit of the predecessors will be continued, learning from history and growing through inheritance. Starting from the past master-servant relationship, by highlighting the characteristics of different openings in the ruins, an intriguing contrast in perspective and state of mind between the two sides is restored. This also symbolizes the relationship between the audience and performers, much like that of a master and servant—Observe and being observed.
This Art center composed of multiple stages, through which the broken ruins and stories are connected into an architectural performance space. Viewers appreciate the space and artworks while observing the moving individuals, sometimes gazing, sometimes peering. This creates an experiential framework from a subjective perspective and a performance from an objective framework. I aspire to create an infinite cycle of observation and being observed, concern and being concerned through this platform of intersecting viewpoints. Bringing residents together to explore and communicate, unfolding a new chapter of Nettleham Hall's story on the stage of historical tales.
