Who cares? A radio tale

Who cares? A radio tale was a curatorial project that turned Gasworks into a live broadcast studio in collaboration with the renowned experimental radio station Resonance FM. A programme of newly commissioned and existing performances, sound works, and discussions took up the subject of affective labour, summarised by philosopher Michael Hardt as a term that ‘grasp[s] simultaneously the corporeal and intellectual aspects of the new forms of production, recognizing that such labor engages at once with rational intelligence and with the passions or feeling.’

  • The curatorial for the curative

    Through my curatorial practice I aim to highlight the affective power of art and give importance to embodiment as a way of knowing, in order to perceive the world from different non-hierarchical perspectives and make art accessible to wider audiences. I am fascinated  by ways of giving materiality to language and mostly engaged in artistic practices expanding linguistic limits and exploring the pre-verbal.
