An intimate, moving performance by Ely Daou that explores the connection between knowing where we are and who we are

Visual artist Ely Daou delves into the depths of his memory, and history, to recall the different apartments he was forced to live in, and to evacuate, during the Lebanese civil war and in the years thereafter. 

Cognitive mapping is a mental process that lets us gather, recall, and make sense of information about our environments. Bringing us around an overhead projector, Ely tells us his personal life story, using architectural details as the starting points to enter the spaces and events of the past. I…Cognitive Maps is an intimate, moving performance that explores the connection between knowing where we are and who we are.
