KAMMAKAMMA at the Rupert Museum, Saturday, 3 December 2022 at 10am
In the Mouth-to-Mouth workshop by artist Abri de Swardt, we will follow the Eerste River’s course from the Rupert Museum to the river mouth at Macassar Beach, storytelling, listening, writing, wandering and mouthing along its flow. River mouths are ecotones, or transitional ecologies, hybrid, mutable and transformative. The river mouth is a litmus test for the overall health of the river, as communities – though linked through the continuum of the river – often only conserve and manage the sections of the river proximate to them. Mouth-to-Mouth will explore queer and decolonial ecological approaches in relation to rivers as hydrocommons, shared,
mutually sustaining fluid spaces.
Note that as the workshop will occur mostly outdoors, please bring walking shoes, a sunhat, a notebook and pen, drinking water, and a towel to sit on.
A secure shuttle service will transport participants from and back to the museum.
Meet the Artist:
Abri de Swardt is an artist, writer and educator whose practice across video, photography, sound, costume, sculpture and performance concerns the interrelations between queerness, decoloniality and the more-than-human.
