NANNA LYSHOLT HANSEN – Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chtulucene #6
I meter I presents: Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucene #6 – a live performance by Nanna Lysholt Hansen
Now we play.
We are glitter, pink, purple, coral and slime.
This which I am going to tell you reaches into your biology, your genealogy and from there stretches tentacularly and technologically into the chthulucene, the future we are becoming. Again. Now
Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucence is a speech performed using playback technology that weaves together Donna Haraway’s concept of ‘the Chthulucene’ with anatomic descriptions of the clitoris by female anatomist Helen O’Connell.
Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucene (2016-18) is a continuation of Dear Daughter/Organic Cyborg Stories (2013) and Dear Daughter/Motherboard Theories of Evolution (2014-2018). A series of live performances, performative speech installations and video performances in which Nanna Lysholt Hansen interweaves her own experiences of pregnancy, birth and sexuality with text fragments from posthuman literary sources.
Dear Daughter/Anatomy of the Chthulucene #6, 2018 is a part of the ongoing exhibition Shaking the habitual in which we invite you to join us in exploring what a future without patriarchy might be. Over a period of 4 months artists, writers, activist groups, debaters and more will join in the search for an answer to the question: what is your feminist utopia?
