these teeming forms

2021


,these teeming forms is a single-channel video work. Duration: 28.33


The land, like the body, is an archive. these teeming forms is a process of communing with the land, of (be)longing with and to it. Textural and sensate, these teeming forms explores porosity - of the land and body;  of eroticism and grief. There is no going back. Queer ecology is enacted here as a process of wilding, looking forwards and out, towards new mythic relations with the land.

these teeming forms was commissioned by ]performance s p a c e[ and supported using public funds by Arts Council England.

The work premiered within an performance installation at VSSL studio. Further screenings have included: ICA (London), ]performance s p a ce[ and Chisenhale Studios.
