Her practice encapsulates a variety of mediums through which she researches possible implementation of feminist care practices through evoking a dialogue between material, writing, hosting and the audience. Within the world building that finds place in her practice, she speculates possible scenarios in which togetherness can build a long-term healing process in recognition of interdependence between communities and non-human companions.

Gathering #2: To Weave a Story


What stories have shaped our world since childhood? Fair maidens, jesters and knights aim to portray the plentiful landscape through which the male Hero conquers his quest. Conventional stories revolve around this male protagonist, causing other characters, non-human life and the environment to only enter the story by proving their usefulness to him. The real world mirrors these conventions, excluding diverse stories, the marginalized and the unproductive from being heard.

In light of fostering different perspectives, To Weave a Story sets out to dismantle the standard form of storytelling by including the environment and its margins. A selection of artworks forms the basis from which we imagine props, fictional characters, natural environments and backdrops. These deconstructed elements of the story become building blocks for a small workshop on storytelling. By weaving together these elements in various ways, diverse stories will emerge, through which other forms of life, and other ways of living may take the spotlight.

On the 30th of March, the exhibition will open to the public. The displayed works invite the viewers to form personal interpretations and narratives. The stories resulting from the workshop become the foundation for hourly, oral storytelling sessions. Throughout this gathering, we hope to not only diversify that which is represented but also seek diversification in how stories are told. This is an effort to find ways of storytelling that don’t comply with the conventional negation of unseen and nonsensical truths. Instead, the program aims to speculatively fabulate on the role of storytelling as a ritual, in which non-anthropocentric, queer and anti-productionist stories may unfold.
