Of blood and bureaucracy: Consequences of the arbitrary.

The point of this space is to make sense of identities as they materialise at different nodes of processes that mark their existence; and it’s only appropriate to start by making pixels bleed out of their white cube. I met with curator and artist Izdihar Afyouni to ask her about playing God with people’s bodies, as she re-imagined what an art exhibition could be, turning visitors into subjects of a curated experience of corporeality, rather than its audience. In a conscious effort to minimise interpretation and preserve intended meaning in its context, the conversation is here in the form of an annotated video.
