The Soul of an Octopus

Pump House Gallery

16 September 2017 - 2.00pm


On the occasion of her solo exhibition, The Conch, Sea Urchin and Brass Bell at Pump House Gallery, Zadie Xa was joined by artists Larry Achiampong and Victoria Sin to discuss the themes of PS/Y’s Hysteria programme with director Errol Francis. Beginning with the classical definition of hysteria as it relates to bodily manifestations of psychological trauma, the conversation drew upon Xa’s work to explore forms of shapeshifting as strategies for resistance and healing.
