We, Animals. Performative lecture by Camilla Graff Junior at SODAS 2123 project space


On April 24th 2024, 6:30 pm, a performance by Camilla Graff Junior will be presented at cultural centre SODAS 2123.

“Contrary to what one might imagine, our health will not come from a border or separation, but only from a new understanding of community with all living creatures, a new sharing with other beings on the planet.” (Preciado 2020).

Which animal do you identify as? Can you briefly describe why? We humans are just one among many animal species. In the performance project we explore ways of mirroring ourselves in other species, in order to give agency to the living around us and generate new insights about ourselves.

In the performative lecture, Camilla Graff Junior uses her collection of plastic animals and draws from an archive of local and experienced knowledge through interaction with the Fjaltring-Trans area on the Danish West Coast, its citizens, animals, and plants.

Camilla Graff Junior is a Danish performance artist. Her projects are situated in the intersections between visual art, creative writing, narrative, feminist theory, archive and affect. Over the past twenty years she has conceived a number of solo and collaborative performances that have been performed in Europe, Africa, South America and the United States. She graduated in performance studies in 2007 and holds a double Master’s degree from Université la Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris and from the University of Copenhagen.
