"The message that is given through movement is a co-operation between the realm above us and the one that we're in.” 

"In my work, I start from the need to dive into different dimensions; realms where my experience and existence are the point of departure. A choice in how I want to portray myself within space to reclaim power. At the same time, I aim to participate in storytelling in an authentic way. This approach leads me to create work that I would have wanted to see when I was younger and at the same time change the narratives that are often associated with my existence" Christian Yav 

Cosmic Bodies on Friday January 6

On January 6, we co-curated a complementary program with Cherish Menzo, starting from chapter 02- Glitch is Cosmic from Legacy Russel's book Glitch Feminism.

“Submerge into an evening where three artistic works travel at the intersections of Speculative and Science fiction, Spirituality, Ancestry, Afro-futures, Black Posthuman dreams, Sonic textures, and Natural Worlds. In-between, pasts, presents, and futures where cosmic bodies ‘’the inconceivably vast’’ are the matter that allow us to witness and experience the abstract.” - Cherish Menzo

19:30 - Movements of Soul by Christian Yav
20:30 - DARKMATTER by Cherish Menzo with Camilo Mejía Cortés
22:15 - soil sciences by M I M I
