Artist conversation, music, smell research, lecture and film screening
This convening broadcasts the ocean as a sphere of sentient belongings, responding to different eventualities from sinking islands to deep sea mining. Approaching the water horizon through coastal scents, queer creatures and contributing a feminist reading to maritime narratives. How may we access the afterlives of shipping and labouring bodies circulating in hidden accounts of sea infrastructure? We conclude with a sonic recital journeying across travel routes as shared languages of the Indian Ocean defy the divides of geographic boundaries.
Conceived by Chus Martínez in collaboration with Natasha Ginwala and Julieta Aranda
