Documentation of collective experience. 1hr 30mins 13secs.

Film recorded on microscopic camera, transcribed conversation used as text for animation. Debris from the evening included blue margaritas. game for 'creative freedom', was an experimental mode of facilitating conversation, disguised within a game mechanic. The setting was the Cold War. The theme, how art and art workers were knowingly - and often unknowingly - mobilized for capitalist and colonialist gains. How was art used for promotion of these 'values'? How were cultural narratives warped to align with the idea of ??a highly developed and progressive global north, while other cultures were positioned as old and 'primitive'?
Colonial Infrastructures Worksessions - (2022 - 24) is made with Sofia Boschat-Thorez and Czarina Calinawagan.
Ongoing series emerging out of Varia. Our workshops intend to make tangible invisible colonial mechanisms of hierarchy and oppression that are prevalent in everyday communication technologies, yet often difficult to understand. We depart from knowledges and tools shared by invited guests, then learn about practices, and possibilities, of knowledge sharing that evade established colonial means, and allow for different ways of access and dissemination.
Notes after On Coloniality - (2022) was written with Chloë Janssens and Túlio Rosa. Essay for reader,?'In these circumstances’. ?Editor, Philippine Hoegen.
Published by Onomatopee Projects and a.pass.

'On Coloniality’ was a temporary context for collective study. To learn, from creative practices and writing, about coloniality’s manifold dimensions.
alternative echelons / installation - (2021) reconfigures the materials and tools of the ongoing project alternative echelons, for gallery setting. Here it is made out of; curved copper pipes, brass fastenings, crab shells, cuttings of 16mm film, (of 'alternative echelons' as film) detritus from the beach, hands free neck holder for your phone, an old android phone displaying a video of writing experiments on a collective writing document (an etherpad) that became the script for 'alternative echelons' as performance, and the digitised version of the 16mm work. Materials are debris from collective work, copper chosen for its role as a component layer in internet cables.
alternative echelons / film - (2020) was performed by Christina Karagianni, George Rallis, ?Merve Kiliçer, amy pickles. ?Sound, Max Franklin. Director ?of Photography, Ana Buljan.
16mm film transferred to digital. 11mins 19secs.

Ongoing research and performance series to challenge colonial infrastructures and reconsider our capture through surveillance technologies. Our action as research involved a workshop | performance | ritual | protest by the Google datacentre in Eemshaven, NL, and around the industrial complex. We were searching for a Dutch undersea internet cable, the COBRAcable, that emerges onto the land at this site. We searched through our phones, extensions of our bodies, and through 'the internet’ in a re-choreography of Chilean artist Cecilia Vicuña’s performance 'Cloud Net'. We are adorned with costumes made up of our phones and Brazilian artist Lygia Clark’s relational objects. Our costumes are our interface for sensing the incomprehensible. This work repeats the actions of an event in 2019, on the british sovereign land base of Dhekelia, in Cyprus. The military base is home to a listening station, which is part of Five Eyes - a network of surveillance made through an alliance between native english speaking countries. This infrastructure enacts colonial surveillance, it is an invisible, pervasive force perpetuating online discrimination and racial bias. We are trying to understand nationalistic perspectives in our education and upbringing. As performers we are british, greek, turkish and cypriot, all nationalities involved in the contested history of the island of Cyprus.

Digital matter is classified as debris, it results from choreographed, collective working and is organised around it's relation to the writer (copied, stolen, found, gift, bought and repurposed) in effort to give attention to networks of learning. The work considers what a learning environment is. It grew from a failed project to make a physical studio space inside an art academy.

Waiting Rooms for Doom

Locatie: Q-O2
In samenwerking met: Chloë Janssens

Ongoing project. Two reporters are speaking from the inside. They witness characters emerging out of architectures and submerged city infrastructures, they register these coded signs in a highly subjective manner. They squeeze themselves into spaces and roles that cannot contain a human form, such as sinking through polluted, radioactive soil, being transmitted through an undersea internet cable and vaporising as nitrogen oxide.

Geopolitical Costume Conversation

Datum:
Locatie: (online publication and screening)
In samenwerking met: Ceschi + Lane, for The New Flesh and First Cut

"In these films, we encounter bodies performing in highly politicised landscapes. Rituals, gestures, interactions, and choreographies act as critical interventions in space to challenge territorial and cultural dominance. Memory is at the core of both these works, whose narrative runs through echoes of pasts events and relics of violent occupations".
