This screening program explores relationships that uphold the unknown as much as the known: to invite participation in experimenting with perceptions of sound and language (Yashaswini Raghunandan and Arianna Zuanazzi), to put one’s body and movement in dialogue with the unknown (Leila Awadallah), to draw aerial scenes of birth through symbiosis of the miraculous Luzi Yang), to hold the preservation and therefore the manifestation of the unknown as a witness and creator (Ali Van), to allow the animated to inherit time in liquid forms (Tulapop Saenjaroen), and to emerge from the materiality of what can be submerged into (Wang Xiaolu). In these works, the unknown carves spaces for new values to surface and for the desire toward multitudes to be pronounced.
