Over het werk door schrijvers:
"... no matter how hard keyon gaskin tries to make the performance not a thing, ‘its not a thing’ is somehow the most captivating thing in town.”
– Jamie Hale, The Oregonian
"gaskin’s work is less about a whole picture––a total or totalizing knowledge––than it is about intimacy, failure to see, nearness that obstructs rather than clarifies, complicates... an expression of that nearness, an interrogation of modalities that insist on clear pictures, on accounts of what was missed. Instead, this work unsettles, undoes, asks what it means, looks like, feels like, to come undone, to see only fragments, to have little or no context."
– Litia Perta, art&education
The presentation of its not a thing is the first in a series of events introducing the artists and a researchers of If I Can’t Dance’s biannual programme, VII (2017–2018), Social Movement. Taking place at various locations in Amsterdam, for these events the commissioned artists will present an existing work and the researchers an introduction to their project.
