Naomi Rincon Gallardo: The Formaldehyde Trip

Naomi Rincón Gallardo: The Formaldehyde Trip

Mexico

 

Presented with The Broad as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA

Presented as part of The Broad’s series En Cuatro Patas (On All Fours), featuring feminist Latinx performance and media artists who ruminate on and fantasize about alternative embodiments, Naomi Rincón Gallardo’s The Formaldehyde Trip is a speculative fiction, comprising a cycle of songs and videos dedicated to murdered Mixtec activist Bety Cariño. The work is a mixture of Mesoamerican cosmologies and decolonial feminist perspectives; crafty and ornate props and settings; echoes from Mexican B movies and sci-fi films of the 1960s and ’70s; sounds and voices from the past, lurking into the future; and lyrics addressing women’s struggles against the background of the dispossession of their lands, bodies and cultures.  

 

January 20, 7:30 pm & 9:30 pm

LOCATION: The Broad
221 S. Grand Ave, Los Angeles, 90012

Presentado con The Broad como parte del Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA

Como parte de la serie de The Broad En Cuatro Patas, que presenta artistas feministas Latinxs de performance y de medios que rumian y fantasean corporalidades alternativas, El viaje de formol es una ficción especulativa que consiste en un ciclo de canciones y videos dedicados a Bety Cariño (1973-2010), activista mixteca defensora de los derechos de los pueblos y territorios indígenas asesinada en 2010 en una emboscada paramilitar. El viaje de formol despliega ecos de cosmologías mesoamericanas, referencias al cine mexicano de ciencia ficción de los 60s y 70s, voces visionarias del pasado cantando hacia el futuro, y letras de canciones inspiradas en luchas de mujeres contra el despojo de sus territorios, cuerpos y vidas. El viaje de formol imagina el trayecto de Bety al inframundo, donde encuentra guerreras, brujas y viudas, animales y deidades con ambos sexos preparando su fiesta de retorno.
