Animistic Apparatus: A Gathering

A multimedia omnibus text by artists in the Animistic Apparatus project with May Adadol Ingawanij and Julian Ross.

May and Julian invited artists involved in the project – whether through participating in an artistic research trip in Udon Thani, northeast Thailand, in April 2019, or through presentation of works within the context of the project’s itinerant exhibitions – to respond with fragments of texts, sound, or photographic and moving image to two questions:

How is animism part of your practice?

What is your relationship to nonhumans?

Artists’ contributions by Félix Blume, Lucy Davis and the Migrant Ecologies Project, Rei Hayama, Sim Hoi Ling, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Juanita Onzaga, Truong Minh Quý, Taiki Sakpisit, Cristian Tablazon, Zai Tang, Fereshteh Toosi, and John Torres.

Additional images by Tulapop Saenjaroen, Tanatchai Bandasak, Noir Row Artspace Udon Thani.
