Enfleshed is a multisensory exhibition reflecting on shamanisms of Inner Mongolia and Manchuria (Northern China) in relation to the serious pollution, electromagnetism, heavy industry and rare-earth mining in the region, global capitalism and the artist’s own body.
Central in the exhibition is Kristiina Koskentola’s film, Flesh and Metal. Light and Oil. (2020) in which rituals such as for example the healing ceremony of Shaman Liu (who, embodied as her Fox God, healed the artist’s shaking hands) dialogue, drumming and singing intertwine with atmospheric electronic soundscapes and (industrial) landscapes. The film examines the potential of ‘non-living’ or 'spectral' subjectivities and time as active political and ethical actors and agencies. It searches for a deeper relationship with natural and spiritual worlds through alternative knowledges and explores the boundaries of human rationalism and knowledge production and the environmental injustice and slow violence of the logic of (global) capitalism. The film draws on dialogues with involved shamans, healers and musicians, local knowledge, lived experience, nonhuman knowledge and theorising by Karen Barad, Rosi Braidotti, Rick Dolphijn and Jussi Parikka.
puntWG will be transformed to a sensory environment that functions as incubator of other knowledge and experiences and as a space for healing.
This inquiry is further expanded and sensitised in installations of the program Enfleshed- Elaborated.
Public Program as Installations
Fetauring: Zoénie Deng, Rick Dolphijn, Mark Kremer, Pia Lindman, Jussi Koitela, Han Xiaohan, German Popov, Bo Wang
Integrated into the exhibition throughout its opening times
Enfleshed-Elaborated is a programme as installations consisting of essays, healing sessions, music performances, interventions and poetry. It is a programme in which, for example, theory might become a poem, an essay a recipe, ancient Manchurian and Uralic music a contemporary soundpiece and a bone setting session of Finnish oral tradition an installation of the subsensorial.
Group of artists, philosophers, cultural theorists, researchers, musicians and curators from Eurasia were invited to reflect on the context of the exhibition Enfleshed – in words and bodies, in flesh. They have delved, among other, into diverse ideas of closeness to nature, spirituality, and the conflicting realities created today’s global economy, as well as the power structures of knowledge and science.
