Let the Emerald Village Carry Me

29 July

This was a live filmic performance in the gallery where the audience was chaperoned across the Atlantic by Msezane, a matriarchal figure who departs from the African continent crossing the middle passage and arriving in Liverpool, to reconcile with this trauma. The piece explored afro-diasporic communities' relationship to water through the lenses of spirituality, Indigenous knowledge systems, ecology and our relationships to time.
