When the project was a seed
“I began to think of our archives as built from our experiences of walls, what we come up against, but also as built out of the creativity and inventiveness that is behind us, that is part of a survival story. It is something I will to return to – the work we have to do to give an ear to those who are often not heard because of the walls that come up ”
Early morning; at the borderlands of contemporary geography and time
It started with a deeply innate knowing that borders (walls) – placed artificially between bodies that long and in fact need to be free in order to thrive – cannot sustain us. Especially all that is womxnly in us and cannot breathe when the flow of what can be called life force, or a livable present on this planet, is interrupted in our daily lives. And in our minds. And especially, in our bodies.
