Description

Shared Surface / Janna Holmstedt

In this combined talk, walk, listening session and reading, I will depart from an invisible border and an urban allotment, the tiny remnants of a once huge community that was levelled with the ground in 1965. Relations are traced between different figures, places and times: earthworms in the soil beneath our feet, potato riots in Stockholm during WW1, the allotment movement, archaeological findings of popcorn in Peru, Sentinel-1, a pair of satellites that orbit Earth to monitor soil moisture, and a cob of corn from Zea mays var. amylacea. All are fragments from a work-in-progress where the allotment becomes a place to think with and through, where the small place, the everyday and the trivial intra-acts with the global, large-scale and remote. I use this superficially demarcated piece of land as an interface – or rather, a situation of shared surfaces – through which post-anthropocentric modalities of belonging and care can be attended to, and transcorporeal entanglements be experienced. Put simply, to me it is a place for unlearning.
