As an interdisciplinary artist working with water as my point of departure, I am starting to dive into the material and political implications of bodily fluids, moving towards a larger consideration of biopolitics. I see a future in which we will have to radically rethink our relationship to nature and our place in her theatre, now that the stage is crumbling. Manifesting through staged monologues and solo expeditions with the earth, I want to play with this future, to fiction and daydream myself into new possibilities, new kinships. Occupying my praxis are concerns for xenofeminist thinking, post-human dreaming and queer fictioning as I delve into my personal herstory and (dis?)entangle the forms of (re)productive labour which make my being possible.
