When the Moon Waxes Red
March 10, 2023 - April 16, 2023
In an age of advanced climate crises, the earth should be read as if it were a script that needs to be interpreted. This links to traditional knowledge, shifts in perspectives and norms and raises the question: What if we pluralised our ideas about the world and acknowledged that the current understanding of the future that has dominated the world for centuries simply leads to a dead(ly) end?
The exhibition heeds the call for a polyphonic view of life on this planet, where humans and non-humans, binary and non-binary subjects and matters have an equal say, and pays attention to the unheard, unseen, indigenous knowledge and futurisms.
‘When the Moon Waxes Red’, borrowed from Vietnamese filmmaker Trinh Minh-h’s book of the same name, brings together artists from around the world that address the imbalance between human activities to extract resources and colonial ideologies, justifying the protection of property over people and nature’s degradation, by using ecofeminism as a point of departure.
