Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen & Shone Puipia
A Collaboration between Art and Fashion
Fluid Transitions is a performance work by artist Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen in collaboration with fashion designer Shone Puipia that reflects on existential matters in a time of significant paradigm shifts where chaos is vital to make a new order. This project, which marries performance, visual arts and fashion, was initiated and curated by Vanini Belarmino. Delivering a selection of original text accompanied by live and recorded music and donning an elaborate costume doubling as her set, Cuenca Rasmussen’s performance bears with it multiple characters that shift between an activist, a preacher, a sorcerer, a queen, queer and a wonder woman. The elaborate and intricate costumes created by Puipia, consisting of four layers, serve as markers in the identity shifts. As a new character is revealed, Cuenca Rasmussen will be stripping them off like the Russian Babushka dolls.
Following its premiere at the National Gallery Singapore and the successful presentations at ATT19 in Bangkok, Thailand and the Hempel Museum in Nykøbing Sjælland, Denmark, the performance will travel to Ateneo Art Gallery and Orange Project in the Philippines in June 2023.
