(Extra)Terrestrial Currents is an online programme of artist moving image, sound and text, presenting a screening programme with artists Thirza Cuthand, Ayesha Hameed, Evan Ifekoya and Himali Singh Soin, a commission by artist and composer Hannah Catherine Jones and a reading list by scholar Kathryn Yusoff.
(Extra)Terrestrial Currents thinks through a spectrum of human connection to land and bodies of water, the localities of which may hold within them histories of devastation as well as the potential for envisioning futures of care, recovery and liberation. While the violent effects of the European colonial project and capitalist extraction continue to unfold, in these visions stolen and polluted land is reclaimed and resuscitated, revolutionary love letters are transmitted along the ocean floor, the healing energy of the earth embraces the body, and spaces free from colonisation are discovered in tune with cosmic frequencies.
