As an anarchist, a mother, an archaeologist, I’m deeply concerned with making kin through the investigation and care of objects, places, and people. Finding a politics of joy and intimacy, and building things together as a way to resist Empire. In this short film I gave an alienated object, a child’s shoe, to my kin, the caretakers of the discarded to understand and reanimate this object, even as it disintegrated in our hands.

The film is 5 minutes long. Shoe was a project curated by Doug Bailey and Sara Navarro for the Ineligible Exhibition at the International Museum for Contemporary Sculpture in Santo Tirso (Portugal) as part of the exhibition Creative (un)makings: Disruptions in Art/Archaeology. More details here.
