From the Donkey to the Moon
HD video, in production
From the Donkey to the Moon is a three screens video installation. It stems a conversation on “spaces of memory and domesticity” with curator Seihee Shon. The work develops a reflection on notions of domestication as colonial drive. The term colonialism is here intended in its expanded meaning: both as imperialistic politics and as an agent of appropriation. As a whole, it will prompt a reflection on the technological colonization of the body, the Western refusal of dysfunctional bodies, and the domestication of 'exotic' lands within capitalist production and leisure.
