Uchronia: The Unequivocal Interpretation of Reality
w/ Maciek Pozoga
Exhibition, photo book, and sound recording (vinyl record), 2015
Surreal ethnographic documentation of travel to a fictional Bamako. Over 10 days, photographer Maciek Pozoga and I meticulously documented the real and the unreal through photo and sound. The imagined capital evolved out of discussions with Bamakois: visual artists, science fiction scenarists, traditional griots, DIY filmmakers, and hip hop studio producers.
The resulting exhibition, Uchronia: The Unequivocal Interpretation of Reality featured photo from Maciek Pozoga, a photo book, edited by Pierre Hourquet, and vinyl record of field recordings (“Field Recordings from Alternate Realities”). The record draws on the experience of a number of musicians, including Mamelon, Luka Productions, and Super Onze.
