At Issue Project Room, as part of the curatorial project The Sonic Unconscious
Curated by Lawrence Kumpf
Also presenting work by Jana Winderen and Yolande Harris
Chased around by the ghosts of a paved-over salt marsh and equipped with perverted botanists’ tools, voices of divination and herbal elixirs, we will explore the neighborhood of Gowanus on foot and onscreen.
Mongrels Part 1: Weeds, on Saturday April 16, 3-4:30PM
Field botany tour of the Gowanus Canal area exploring the place of edible and medicinal weeds in ecologies of decolonization.
Mongrels Part 2: Elixirs, on Sunday April 17, 6-7:30PM* and 8-10PM
Field botany tour (6-7:30) followed by a screening of the Mongrels short video work and witching hour reception, open to all (8-10).
I am grateful to Dori Midnight, Eymund Diegel, Issue Project Room, Proteus Gowanus, Halo Halo, Nika Khanjani and Adam Rosadiuk for their support and insight.
