‘Crossing Seas and Mountains’
curated by Antonie Angerer & Anna-Viktoria Eschbach (Directors and founders of I: project space, Beijing)
Crossing Seas and Mountains examines the networks and new definitions that epitomize the shape of a distributed, pluralistic, non-linear world. Like Sadie Plants’ witch, who desires to fly throughout space “crossing seas and mountains”, this screening investigates transitions across multiple systems and body identities, in reference to Zeros+Ones.
Physically present in Beijing, I: project space offers a hybrid practice in creating a new network of art practice and discourse, challenging preexisting notions of social, cultural and political forces in art. As the body is simultaneously personal and political, this screening is collecting work that forges connections between queer, migrant, spiritual and intercultural identity in a digital world.
