Animalesque with Daisy Hildyard
Wednesday 1 April 2020

Across three 5-minute sessions, writer Daisy Hildyard offers readings from selected texts in response to the exhibition Animalesque / Art Across Species and Beings at BALTIC. These extracts resonate with the exhibition by inviting us to re-think human's position in the world, their relationship to the natural world and to the various complex ecologies that bond beings together.

Reflecting on the exhibition.

2. From Svetlana Alexievich, Chernobyl Prayer, published 1997
In response to Pierre Huyghe, Human Mask (2014).

3. From Christina Sharpe, In the Wake: On Blackness and Being​, published 2016
Reflecting on Ho Tzu Nyen, 2 or 3 Tigers (2015); Pia Arke with Anders Jorgensen, Tupilakosaurus (1999) and Britta Marakatt-Labba, Borrhål (2018), Mellan två världar, Snömodd (2019).
