Description

What if exhibitions weren't primarily addressed to humans?

Animistic Apparatus @ Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival is a speculative exhibition that draws inspiration from Southeast Asia's ritualistic genealogy of artistic practice and expression.

Animistic Apparatus @ BFMAF asks what if contemporary film screenings and installations were reimagined as if they were rituals offered and addressed to nonhuman beings. What if artistic ecology positioned humans as precarious makers of offerings rather than as authors of work or producers of self expression? What could artistic practices and exhibitions be if humans were situated as one of the mediating parts of the apparatus and rituals of communication with nonhuman beings, and human audiences were an incidental part of the enactment and display of art, neither invited to nor excluded from the ritual or the event?

Animistic Apparatus @ BFMAF takes the form of site-based installations, performances, and storytelling, featuring visionary Southeast Asian artists Lucy Davis, Lav Diaz, Chris Chong Chan Fui, Tanatchai Bandasak, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul; and the Future Tao performances and workouts by Taiwanese collective lololol (Sheryl Cheung and Xia Lin). Dispersed across Berwick-upon-Tweed, the installations stage an encounter between the artists' works and the open air sites and spaces of historical sedimentation of the town, embracing the vulnerability of exposure to its weather, its geographical and infrastructural composition, and its nocturnal ambiences.
