London-based artist duo Breakwater will perform Yellow Furry Lullaby as part of the Lunar New Year Weekend at FACT.

The performance brings awareness of the historical trauma around Chinese indentured labour with the recent tragedies of the 2004 Morecambe Bay cockling disaster and the 2021 Atlanta spa shootings. Interweaving the children’s classic We’re Going on a Bear Hunt with Korean national mythology, Breakwater’s work examines the lineage of trauma amongst Asian communities and offers the performance as a ritual and moment of collective healing.

Yellow Furry Lullaby will be presented alongside Fermented Flower (2021), a textile and audio large-scale installation that challenges the racist roots deeply embedded in the field of botany.

The Korean diaspora duo use performance to explore social practice around the lived experience of migrants and climate justice.

Breakwater are Youngsook Choi and Taey Iohe – the Korean diaspora duo use performance to explore social practice around the lived experience of migrants and climate justice. Exploring postcolonial and intersectional identities, the duo create installations that combine performance, film, sound, photography and text and are interested in excavating notions around spiritual knowledge, folklore, and queer methodologies.

Yellow Furry Lullaby is an interactive performance, taking place in Gallery 2, during which a small measure of alcohol (containing honey) will be served.
