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.
