Matrilineal Mythologies (2021)
Video Performance (7.74 min)
Collaboration between Jesse May Fisher, Paola Estrella, Katrina Wilde and Rita Silva .

Drawing from previous research anchored in tacit knowledge passed down through maternal lines, each artist brings an offering to the table. Through a cycle of repetition and closure, an embodied conversation is performed. Text, material, sound and the body become conduits for practical magic. Honouring entangled stories within intimate gestures, the everyday is elevated as current threads of our research are closed.
