Extractive Archives: Conversation and Book Launch

Sonic Acts Biennial invites visitors to an evening conversation and book launch at W139, celebrating the two Sonic Acts commissioned works OBIT and Hard Drives from Space — and the publication of Oil News 1989-2020, a new artist book commissioned and released by Sonic Acts Press.

During the evening, Maryam Monalisa Gharavi and Sam Lavigne will be joined by Sonic Acts curators, alongside artists Louis Braddock Clarke and Zuzanna Zgierska, researcher Miyuki Daorana, and the designer of Oil News, Farah Fayyad. This event expands on two of the works specially commissioned for the one sun after another exhibition: Hard Drives from Space by Louis Braddock Clarke and Zuzanna Zgierska, and OBIT by Maryam Monalisa Gharavi and Sam Lavigne. With their shared interests in hidden archives, extraction, and counternarratives, this evening seeks to excavate the stories behind these two works — unearthing conversations on collaborative research methods and alternative modes of collection.
