Curated by Cindy Baker, Curator, Moving Image and Performance.
Christina Battle’s research and artistic work consider the parameters of disaster; looking to it as action, as more than mere event, and instead as a framework operating within larger systems of power. Through this research she imagines how disaster could be utilized as a tactic for social change and as a tool for reimagining how dominant systems might radically shift. In Off This Spinning Rock, mystic animalistic forces spark a mass exodus before the planet implodes.
