Feifei Zhou on Jakarta’s rivers in 'Matter as Actor'
2 May 2023
Artist Feifei Zhou narrates a description of her wall drawing, Flowing Toxins (2020) elucidating how infrastructures arrange water supply, sewage, and property into shifting relationships that variably reproduce structures of urban inequality in Jakarta, Indonesia. Across various scales, perspectives, and dimensionalities, the drawing displays multiple narratives and material processes at once. There are many entry points to reading the drawing, showing the simultaneity and multiplicity of the ecologies through which the material landscape and structural inequality co-shape one another.
'Matter as Actor' continues in London until 24 June 2023
