TRASHBACK TO THE FUTURE (2017)
Trash is a material consequence of the ritual function of forgetting in a capitalist society that erasure to accommodate for its everyday excess. But records of memory without the home of a body still survive. Because as always, all that is thrown away, that is forgotten, will still return. The mythical mermaid crashes on the shore of the Island of Capital, swimming in time, finding the bones of its ancestors, helping tell her people’s story.
