Thanks Jen Weih, Barbara Cole and Other Sights for inviting me to present alongside with Will Plowright for the Foreshore series. I loved the interdisciplinary expansiveness of the programming and the resulting discussions, and big thanks to the friendly and engaged audience! Till again soon.

The Foreshore | Session 15
Laiwan with seagrass, jellyfish and dying stars &
Will Plowright on his research with insurgents
Tuesday May 16, 7pm
Other Sights at Access Gallery
222 East Georgia, Vancouver BC
Please join us for two short presentations followed by discussion.
In an approach to decolonization in tentacular thinking, an approach to staying with the trouble, making oddkin, and in a pitch darkness cast by the Enlightenment, Laiwan will speak nearby with recent research navigating creative practice that is, where and what is, distinct from human exceptionalism and instrumental logic.
Plowright will discuss his work with armed groups (some labelled ‘terrorists’), and the attempts to come to an understanding of them as human beings, rather than as monsters, criminals or deviants.
