A new project by London-based Geopoetics Research Group about islands, their intensities and chaotic psychic states. This 1-hour montage explores the mysteries of the archipe-logical, and considers breakaway evolution, fugitive imaginaries and the tie between erosion and sovereignty.
For this, Arthur Gouillart and Elaine Tam have co-authored a short piece entitled ‘Cadaver island’, which explores Philipp Mainlander’s philosophy and the stages of decomposition.
