About the Event

also- animal- the- after- animal

and- before- because- we- are

also- always- animal?

time turtle is calling

to leave

our paths and follow her through temporalities and time capsules. We can become a particle of her armour, a bone of her vertebra- we can become the material from which life springs since millions of years. Her richness makes us humble

as we start to forget the origin of stories- where she began- where we started to follow her.

Creatures of the past, present and future come to life, in different time continuums, choose to speak and stay silent. The artist draws on a turtle’s herstory of being displaced and mislabelled for a century. Through this improvisational piece Zandile Darko is giving space and is sharing her approach of unlearning and undoing, following the turtle’s calling.
