Himali Singh Soin in a metallic costume

A curated evening of artist films and audio works considering the complex relationship between ecology, futurism and ecofeminism.

Himali Singh Soin and David Soin Tappeser’s audio piece Subcontinentment (2018) reflects on the potentiality of South Asian Futurism as a form of political resistance while multidisciplinary artist Josèfa Ntjam’s film Mélas de Saturne (2020) narrates fictions and truths towards a decolonial, trans-feminist empowerment. Melanie Bonajo’s film Night Soil: Nocturnal Gardening (2016) presents four commanding women whose stories explore Indigenous land rights and the consequences of consumerism. Mexican Colectivo Los Ingrávidos’s psychedelic film Itzcóatl (2016) is a study of natural resistance while Soin’s film we are opposite like that (2019) turns to the arctic regions, developing a new mythology about the farthest reaches of our planet. The expansive vision presented here implies that another world is, and has always been, possible.

These films have been curated to coincide with Claudia Andujar: The Yanomami Struggle.
