Am I Ancient or a Human-made Machine

Guest Curated by Paz Guevara.
In collaboration with Goethe Institute and Blue Cabin Residency.

How do exhibitions have the capacity to create moments of communality rather than objectifying the beings that enter into its modern grid? How does the exhibition become permeable to life through orality, reciprocity and in connection with geopolitical trajectories, struggles and potential alliances? In a partly speculative and partly documentary manner, artist Michelle-Marie Letelier weaves a series of collaborations through virtual reality, song, crystal performances, conversations and in-situ actions. Against the grain of extractivism, this exhibition engages the poethics of a sovereign ocean through the consciousness and memory of our fellow being, the salmon: Am I ancient or a human-made machine?
