Oceanic Fabulation


Extract from « Overtures », work in progress by Louis Henderson

The secret is only transmitted in transformation and transmutation.

Thinking of opacity and obscurity as aesthetic strategies in artistic creation​, this presentation will look into the politics of translation and transmission of ancestral heritage within settler colonial and former slave societies. Using two extracts from recent films as examples of the double facing of artistic gestures, that both reveal and hide secrets in processes of transmutation.
