SWAMP LIVING

WORKSHOP BY KIRSTEN COOKE | CHRIS HIND | STEPHANIE MORAN | JOSEPH WALSH | MAGGIE ROBERTS

19 MAY 2018  3 – 6 PM

We invite you to join us in entering the swamp, a three-hour event for experimental, immersive, interspecies ‘becomings’, assisted by drone sound, movement and speculative fictioning. This takes place within and draws upon  the actants of maggie roberts’ technological shamanic environment, performing tentacular distributed consciousness.

Firstly, when a human becomes an animal, the animal may be imaginary, but the becoming is real (so the object of becoming may be a ‘representation’ but not the act itself); secondly, when a human becomes an animal, the animal necessarily becomes something else (a different type of human, perhaps); and thirdly, in the act of becoming what changes is not the subject, but the world. transformation then is not so much a process as a quality corresponding to multiple identities or to multiple points of view or realities focused on one entity… transformation or becoming is a quality not a process – it is an instantaneous shift of perspectives, a plurivocal multiplicity or rather the entangled non decidable coexistence of two perspectives, each hiding the other in order to appear, the flipping over of sides in a ‘two-sided species’. the real opposition here is that between essences and apparitions (which make different essences communicate). nothing ‘happened’ but everything is changed. no process, no production; just position and condition, that is, relation – to recall the definition of potential energy.

viveiros de castro (2016) ‘the relative native’, p287-8.

The event will be filmed for purely documentation and research purposes – by booking a place you agree to be filmed. the film is not intended to be exhibited and will not be shown publicly without express permission from all participants. thanks!


THE SHAPING OF A MESSAGE

RAMON AMARO | JOHN CUSSANS | AYESHA HAMEED | BETTI MARENKO

GOLDSMITHS CAMPUS PSH LG02

8 JUNE, 2 – 7 PM

FREE ADMISSION

‘The Shaping of a Message’ is a day symposium organised by Maggie Roberts who is currently a Research Fellow with the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths. She will be joined by staff members Simon O’Sullivan, Ayesha Hameed and Ramon Amaro and long time colleagues John Cussans, Stephanie Moran and Betti Marenko.

Each speaker will present work investigating relationships between climate change, decolonisation, animism, fictioning and digital uncertainty. These are all themes relevant to Maggie Roberts concurrent exhibition, ‘glimmer breach’ at IMT Gallery.

The artist wants to create a platform to share work, research, contexts, problematics and ideas for co creating alternative futures and the decolonisation of thought, whether human or artifical. Maggie has invited individuals whose work is inclusive, radical, sensitive, fictional and in some way an experiment that addresses some of these urgent issues.  

The event involves a mixture of conversations, presentations and a participatory fictioning experiment, and encourages an open and intimate atmosphere in which the audience participates with imaginative responses, difficult questions and suggestions of how we move forward as theoreticians, writers, artists, performers etc. We hope that the work in progress /organic /evolving/explorative tone of the event will hold a space open for the shaping of a message together’.
