This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.

Arjuna Neuman and Denise Ferreira da Silva study across disciplines in order to speculate upon alternative ways of living and flourishing. Their newly commissioned film, Soot Breath / Corpus Infinitum, continues their interest in reimagining histories of knowledge away from Eurocentric and colonial origins. The film gathers together a variety of examples where subjectivity is unbound from the body alone, and rebound to the world. It scales between the historical and cultural, organic, quantum and cosmic – all the while tracking the element of earth through its many forms and facets, groundings and afterlives.

Following on from their collaborative films Serpent Rain (2016) and 4 Waters (2019), this new work aims to question how structures of power perpetuate categorisation to break modes of collectivity.
