Webinar: Deep in The Eye and The Belly

Dear ocean lovers, here is a tip on an online event (in English) with the Göteborg museum of natural history – register for 8 June 18.00 hrs CEST. I believe the film sounds so promising, so perhaps you dont want to miss out on this?

About Deep in The Eye and The Belly
…In the present day, a story is unearthed of a whale body that became a world of dinner parties, clandestine sex and mayoral speeches. In a possible future, a group of those-who-were-left-behind (or, those-who-chose-to-stay) have made a home inside the body of a whale. They find themselves contemplating this new world and speculating on the state of things outside – a world ravaged by a climate crisis which they survived by turning to the ocean. At a crossing between the present day and this potential future, a lone figure sings a lament for the body of the world’s last whale… Join us, on World Ocean Day, for a talk with artist Sam Williams and marine biologist Kennet Lundin, where we explore the deep seas through art and biology.

About the participants
Sam Williams is an artist with a multidisciplinary practice, working across moving-image, collage, choreography and text. Sam is based in London where he is a resident at Somerset House Studios. He has exhibited and screened work at institutions including Arnolfini, Baltic39, Siobhan Davies Dance, Somerset House, Tate Britain, Studio Voltaire and South Kiosk (UK), She Will (Norway); Kino Arsenal, Akademie der Kunst, Tanzhalle Wisenberg and B3 Biennale (Germany).

His ongoing research focuses on multispecies entanglements, ecological systems, bodies-as-worlds and folk mythologies and how they can inspire ideas for present and future ways of non-human-centric living.

Kennet Lundin is a marine biologist, author and researcher. He is based at the Gothenburg Natural History Museum in Sweden where he manages the marine collection, is involved in working with the museum’s exhibition and outreach. He has authored many scientific articles, several popular scientific books on marine animals, and recently also a book on how to cook and eat them.

Multi-sensorial Attunement between Human and Horse in Mongolia (with Natasha Fijn) 6 Oct, 13.30 – online seminar at Université de Liège

Le LASC (Laboratoire d’Anthropologie Sociale et Culturelle) et le MEAM (Multispecies Ethnography and Artistic Methods) invitentNatasha Fijn, Director of the Mongolia Institute and ARC Future Fellow (The Australian National University) pour une présentation intitulée “Multi-sensorial Attunement between Human and Horse in Mongolia”.

Humans and horses are increasingly living settled and enclosed existences, while being used less in working roles. In the Land of the Horse, Mongolia, horses still function as a core part of the mobile pastoral herding existence. The focus here is on the use of ‘architectures of domestication’ (Anderson et al., 2017), specifically herding tools and implements as extensions of the body. The GoPro camera is employed as a research tool to explore multi-sensorial attunement. Bloodletting tools are passed on over the generations and are used to jab key points of the horse, as an important means of building immunity and preventing illness. There has been little documentation of the practice of bloodletting on horses, so within the upcoming presentation this ancient healing tradition will be described through a multi-sensory ethnographic approach. Tools used by herders could be construed as a means of control or coercion, yet in the case of the lasso pole is used with the intention of directing and guiding individual animals, or in the instance of the bloodletting knife, to assist in a horse’s overall health and wellbeing.  

Quand : Le 6 octobre 2022 de 13h30 à 15h.

Lieu : local A2 dans le bâtiment B7a (Grands Amphis)

Announcement for Karen Barad upcoming virtual talk (28 Sep) On Touching the Stranger Within

Professor Karen Barad gives a virtual talk and presention Wednesday, September 28, 2022, titled On Touching the Stranger Within—Material Wonderings/Wanderings. The talk is free to attend, and it is part of a touring art exhibition called DRIFT: art and dark matter, which is currently showing at the Justina M. Barnicke gallery at the University of Toronto.

Part of what makes this event so exciting is its cross-disciplinary nature, combining work in particle physics, philosophy, and art. Karen Barad is a professor of feminist studies, philosophy, and history of consciousness at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Their work is highly interdisciplinary — prior to this appointment, they held a faculty position in particle physics. DRIFT itself is a cross-disciplinary exhibit. From the gallery website: “four artists of national and international stature were invited to make new work while engaging with physicists, chemists, and engineers contributing to the search for dark matter at SNOLAB’s facility in Sudbury, two kilometers below the surface of the Earth.” 

More information about the event and a registration link are available on the gallery website: 

Best wishes,
