A performative installation on the ethics and aesthetics of queer cohabitation
“Act out your fantasies without believing them to be real” - Larry Mitchell, The Faggot and Their Friends Between Revolutions
By our presence, we shape space. In this project of queer terraforming, walls bend, floors crumble, air liquifies - we follow our desire for cohabitation with humans, more-than-humans, creatures, critters, beasts. Monstrosity permeates the space, Softness enveloping bodies. The monstrous, the hybrid, the queer can be reclaimed as a strategy of empowerment and liberation in sympoiesis. A garden arises, the space becomes alive, and we fill it with care and love and leisure.
We warmly invite you to inhabit this space with us: come join us in this workshop/performance/installation of leisure.
