Agata Siniarska, Julia Plawgo & rat milk

The extinction of species, their collective death is an entangled mass grave transformed in time, an event without a monument, without memory or social awareness. The lack of memory of dying individual species of flora and fauna is an archive of silent stories, unnoticed traces, voiceless.



Museum of the Anthropocene. Diorama No1 - Ghosts and Monsters / Agata Siniarska


The „Museum of the Anthropocene“ is a death zone - a place where the living and the dead meet and permeate. Its collection consists of the traces of extinct species, the ghosts of animals that were never mourned, future fossils and bodies of those who entered into alliances with technology, plants and beasts. The temporality of the Museum of the Anthropocene oscillates between geological time, the slow violence of an environmental catastrophe and the rapidness of a nuclear explosion.

Down to the Bone / Agata Siniarska

What happens when one species dies? Vinciane Despret writes in her text that the world dies from every absence. Each time an existence disappears, it is a piece of the universe of sensations that fades away. Every time an existence disappears, something disappears in my world and thus in me. How can this be my physical experience? How can we meet in our matters? How can I meet a death of another existence that is no longer here? Is the meeting in our matter an encounter in its transformations? Is the encounter in our matters an encounter in their disappearances?

 

The answer to all these questions is LOVE.

Love.

Love will keep us together

Think of me babe, whenever

(...)

I'll be thinking of you

Look in my heart and let love keep us together.

This concert-performance is filled with love songs for beings who are no longer there, the passenger pigeon, the okami wolf, the Golden Lion Tamarin and others. Through sound and voice I will try to be for and with them, to give the vitality of my body and the resonance of my voice to their bodies, of which only traces remain, and their silenced voices.
