Who’s in the Zoom? Invisible Disability & Identity – An Afternoon of Poetry & Discussion with Chanje Kunda
April 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Invisible Disability & Identity – An Afternoon of Poetry and Discussion with Chanje Kunda
Join us on Thursday 1st April at 4pm for a shared screening of Chanje’s visual poem Kintsugi Gold, followed by a discussion with Chanje about personal & community identity with an invisible disability.
Kintsugi Gold is a short film that premiered at the Dadafest International Festival 2020. The film artistically combined performance art and poetic language to create a mesmerising piece of digital art, exploring how it feels to be broken inside. Using my body as a canvas, painting cracks and fractures on my face and body in gold, was an artistic arrangement that makes brokenness look beautiful. I also explored linguistic concepts around brokenness. ‘… clouds break. Why can’t I?’
