Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter - Lecture by Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia)

London, 27.10.21

With Elysia Crampton

Multidisciplinary artist Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia) shares text and image research on embodied cultural heritage that informed the creation of her and Joshua Chuquimia Crampton's new moving image work Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter, and explore ideas of memory repression through a range of archival materials drawn from Aymaran histories and cultures, as well as research from neuroscientists Cristina Alberini and Mark Solms.

This lecture performance is in conjunction with Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter, the first international solo exhibition by US-based artists Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia) and Joshua Chuquimia Crampton, a newly commissioned moving image, in which the artists, who are members of the Pakaxa Aymara nation, enact a ceremony for their grandmother and explore their family’s rituals around death. Underpinned by the nation’s abolitionist traditions as inseparable from the Black radical tradition, this project attests to different spacetimes and ways of imagining as ‘abolition geographies’ (Ruthie Gilmore Wilson, 2017).
