Event description
Join us for a performance lecture by exhibiting artist Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia).

About this event

In this event, Chuquimamani-Condori will share text and image research on embodied cultural heritage that informed the creation of her new moving image work Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter, and explore ideas of memory repression and neuroscience through a range of archival materials drawn from Aymaran histories and cultures.

This talk is in conjunction with Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter, the first international solo exhibition by US-based artists Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia) and Joshua Chuquimia Crampton, a newly commissioned moving image, in which the artists, who are members of the Pakaxa Aymara nation, enact a ceremony for their grandmother and explore their family’s rituals around death. Underpinned by the nation’s abolitionist traditions as inseparable from the Black radical tradition, this project attests to different spacetimes and ways of imagining as ‘abolition geographies’ (Ruthie Gilmore Wilson, 2017).

Chuquimamani-Condori is an Aymara multidisciplinary artist and musician. Under the moniker Elysia Crampton, Chuquimamani-Condori has released multiple critically acclaimed records, including her most recent LP ORCORARA 2010 (2020). Recent presentations include the Biennale of the Moving Image at Centre D’Art Contemporain in Geneva (2018) and LUMA Westbau in Zürich (2018). Her first book Amarupachankiri (2020) was published with Puro Fantasia.
