The Formaldehyde Trip – Visual Art Performance

  • Thu 10 May 2018

The Formaldehyde trip (2017) is a twisted mythical speculative fiction aspiring to materialize and activate the ghost/spirit/body/of the murdered Mixtec activist Bety Cariño. It’s the work of Vienna based artist Naomi Ricón Gallardo currently studying for her PhD in Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts. Ricón Gallardo’s work addresses initiatives related to the creation of counter-worlds in neo-colonial settings. The work is comprised a set of videos, songs and speeches organised in a performative-screening.

This event is part of Queer Futures, a public programme of events and exhibition exploring narratives for queer resistance, from mythology and folklore to speculative science fiction. The programme will include performances, screenings, discussions and workshops and each event will leave a contribution in the space to form a gradually expanding archive.
