Devouring the Contiguous/ A Devorar o Contíguo

Catarina de Oliveira

Curator: Jean-François Chougnet | Session: Open Call – Screening of competition finalists

In ‘Devouring the Contiguous’ a girl narrates (in a stream of conscious manner) her memories of a night of insomnia caused by the haunting ghosts of a recent colonial past. During that night, she watches a documentary about fungi, which promotes the idea that these organisms can prevent eminent environmental catastrophes. The imagery comes from recordings of fungi at the microscopic level.
