Episōdo 10 Interstitium / অন্তঃশিরা

-The Penultimate Episōdo with video presentations by artists




We started our journey with the Yokohama Triennale 2020 with an almost untranslatable Bengali word — antashira, suggestive of a flow of energy within and between lives. A flow that shapes life in all its extensibility. We had conjectured that the world needs to draw sustenance, inspiration, and strength from within varied antashira, our intrinsic-pervasive forces, that flow between all of us as we re-fashion relationships between the microcosm of singular lives, the connected life of the planet, and the macrocosm of that-which-is-beyond-our-planet.
Today, the word ‘bubble’ is a name given to passages connecting routes and landing points; it is no longer a marker only of an exclusionary zone. Words and world alter, in new relationships with each other. A mere three years ago, researchers had found a new organ, a layer of dense, fluid-filled compartments they termed the ‘interstitium’, and which they said was ‘hiding in plain sight’. We are slowly drifting into a recognition of being within fluid and spectral continuums.

In this penultimate Episōdo of the Triennale, we ease into a gap, inaccessible in many ways, between art and its artists. What is that energy that flows between a discrete moment of a work and the sentient presence of an artist? What is that ‘zone’ of continuum, that interstitium, that brings a work amidst us? We chase 13 artists to sense this.

And along with that, we will be in another chase: the chase of a scent with the Discursive Justice ensemble, who over the last year and a half have gathered a stream of protagonists to explode those perpetual spells of rain and drought called discourse and justice.
Furthermore: we know that many have wanted to see the time-based works being shown in the exhibition, so we will begin this Episōdo with screenings of artists’ films.
