Animistic Apparatus: Cosmos

January 11–March 1, 2020

Animistic Apparatus: Cosmos

Outline

‘Animistic Apparatus: Cosmos’ is the screening program related to the exhibition “Open Possibilities: There is not only one neat way to imagine our futures.”


This screening is presented in the context of Animistic Apparatus, a research and curatorial project initiated by May Adadol INGAWANIJ, where the concept of an animistic cinematic medium is proposed as a medium of cosmological entanglement and communication, and of deep time-space. The selection of recent moving image work by artists from Asia tell stories of relations between land, place, spirits, technology, and people. It sees nonhumans also as entities that embody history, speculate futures, and tell their own stories. Together these films question the assumption that humans are the only ones that remember, the only ones that imagine, and the only audience of cinema.

Co-curated by May Adadol INGAWANIJ (Writer, Curator) [Thailand/UK] and Julian ROSS (Researcher, Curator) [Japan/UK/Nethrelands]
