Ground Water: an audio walk with Liz Rosenfeld & Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris

Listen to the letters while you move around a body of water. It can be a body of water of your own making. As you traverse the perimeter of your island, be it fictional or real, listen to the letters.

Artist Liz Rosenfeld and curator Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris find correspondence in their practices through a joint enquiry of queer bodies of water, encompassing fleshy matters of cruising, brackish waters and wave-based vibrations. The audience will experience this hydro-visceral exchange through an outdoor audio walk.

Liz Rosenfeld (USA/DE) is a Berlin based artist who works in film/video, performance, and personal discursive writing practice. Liz explores the sustainability of emotional and political ecologies, cruising methodologies, and both past and future histories related to the ways in which memory is queered. Liz’s work approaches flesh as a non-binary collaborative material, specifically focusing on the potentiality of physical abundance and excess, approaching questions regarding the responsibility and privilege of taking up space. Liz’s work is rooted in questions that contend with how queer ontologies are rooted in both political and personal variant hypocritical desire(s). Liz’s films are represented by Video Data Bank and LUX Moving Image.
