About PUNCTURE POINTS – Where energy meets the everyday

The research was driven by the questions:

What is the relationship between energy and the everyday in the Western Cape?
What are the connection patterns and narratives between energy, people and society?

Through a series of workshops with a wide range of cultural organisations and related businesses, a team and ethos was formed to ensure that the project had local relevance and resonance.

The Puncture Points project will provide a platform for local, independent artists, designers and art initiatives from various areas in the Western Cape to show their work to a broad audience and connect to the local and international art as well as the business society.

The philosophy of PUNCTURE POINTS - Where energy meets the everyday comes from acupuncture or acu-points, which are the various locations on a human body on a line of energy (meridian), into which an acupuncture needle can be inserted to exact a benefit. PUNCTURE POINTS then, traces energy flows and investigates how the nuanced relationship creates synergies between energy and the everyday. This energy is studied as a moment of transformation, mobility, performance, interaction, exchange and choreography.
