Project M, a shared solos project, proposes experimental encounters between two migratory bodies, through the negotiation of parameters and mechanisms that produce, what we refer to as, “anchor-less belonging”. This is an interdependent environment for the contaminated creative processes of two immigrant artists, as we accompany, refract and care for each other as a method and practice.

Each evening consists of an individual demonstration and an audience discussion about the work and process.

Thursday 16th of December Lindon Shimizu’s Unpacking.
Duration is approximately 30 minutes.

Friday 17th of December Dasha Lavrennikov’s From Frost and Flame.
Duration is approximately 25 minutes.

“Through research, re-creation and recycling of the material we construct and deconstruct meaning and presence together, by exploring the transversal relationship between feedback, creation and curation.

We use somatic, movement and new media practices as tools for activating collective encounters and incorporating a multidimensional sense of subjectivity. Our research is interested in decolonising anthropocentric perspectives, proposing alternative ways of being together and reimagining possibilities of socio-environmental interlocations.”


This Z-free is part of the first GAP LAB collaboration between Zodiak and Globe Art Point. The residency was originally going to take place in autumn 2020.
