These Seasons | Ancestors of the Blue Moon by Himali Singh Soin with David Soin Tappeser
Wed | 7PM
For the fourth iteration of These Seasons, Swiss Institute presents Ancestors of the Blue Moon, featuring poetry by Himali Singh Soin with David Soin Tappeser on gongs.
“Ancestors of the Blue Moon combines flash fictions set in the Himalayas and a gong bath, in order to bring us out of our crisis of lost presence. It evokes its animistic rituals and remedies, mystical geometries, old-new materialisms and spirit realisms. These flash fictions come from the perspective of remote or forgotten deities. Deities protected by rites of secrecy or left out of archives. Deities invisible and formless. Deities incarnated as ruined objects, dangerous aspects or shadowy energies. They flow through our contemporary timescape, recounting the world they witness, transforming linear time into mythical time.”
These Seasons is an ongoing transdisciplinary public program that invites artists, scholars and writers to explore theories of nature, landscape, ecology, human and non-human life forms and climate action.
