"Object-ify" Ourselves! with Elena Yu
Can we decolonize our bodies through transforming ourselves into objects that hold personal meaning, and what will this look and feel like?
As a part of our current exhibition Subterranean Borders: Colonialism, Extraction and Defiance, Dream Farm Commons is hosting a series of small events, or Encuentros , to decolonize our imaginations or as practical border action.
We welcome Elena Yu for a workshop focusing on decolonizing the body. After a series of movement, writing and sound exercises, we will share object memories. Borrowing each other’s memories as inspiration, we will playfully construct wearable homages and create a moving and embodied landscape of memory.
We will also have a dinner after the workshop made by 2 of the artists from the Subterranean Borders exhibition -- they will make a vegetarian meal inspired by Ingrids Indigenous roots and Ann's California roots -- go here for tix
