From experimental documentary to analogue photography, from field recordings to live arts, Iranian artist pantea works across many disciplines, exploring different ways of imagining new narratives of ecological connections.

Her practice currently revolves around wetlands and marshes—liminal spaces that she approaches through the plant known as sundew (drosera), in an exercise in non-human fiction involving shared subjectivity and thinking-with. This research has gone hand in hand with a growing interest in socially engaged practice and the possibilities of sound and listening, which has materialised in the form of record releases as well as projects such as Khamoosh, an artistic research group (of which she is a member and founder) dedicated to preserving and archiving Iranian sonic heritage.

In this podcast, we talk to pantea about studying in Edinburgh, about the peat bogs of Scotland and about the misconceptions surrounding wetlands. We discuss agency, more-than-human subjectivities and the (im)possibilities that open up when thinking-with sundew, and talk about her experience with the Khamoosh listening and archiving community.

Antye Greie (AGF)
more

Antye Greie (aka AGF or poemproducer) is a poet, activist, sound artist, sound sculptor, and curator, born in East Germany and based on the island of Hailuoto in northern Finland for over fifteen years. In this podcast, we talk to Antye Greie about language, sound, and the body. At their intersection, the voice emerges, with its multiple resonances and different ways of introducing the voice of others through her own practice and space of visibility. Along the way, we look at her work and methodology, from the deconstruction of texts to the implementation of what she calls “feminist sonic technologies”.

A grain of rice sits in a field on the banks of the Mekong river. A water buffalo breaks up soil in the Ifugao terraces in the Philippines. A black box containing rice seeds is placed on a shelf inside the Svalbard seed vault at -18°C in Norway. From such a common seed, hidden in plain sight, artist-scholar Elaine Gan weaves a dynamic network of relationships connecting agroecology and more-than-human sociability, subsistence farmers and climate change, contaminated taxonomies and feminist theory.In this podcast, Elaine Gan talks about crop science, feral technologies, the global pandemic, radical difference, the art of noticing, Matsutake mushrooms, and, of course, the blahblahsphere.
