SESSION is a project modelling itself after an incubator that invites cultural practitioners to engage with questions that emerge out of a given exhibition.
How to see when there is nothing to see?
This Session is a coming together to reflect on ways of witnessing and seeing beyond disappearance. We share and explore sacred practices that have emerged as forms of resistance at the intersection of climate catastrophe and infrastructural violence in the Indus Delta of Pakistan. Taking as an entry point the sacred poetry and music of 18th century Sufi saint Abdul Shah Latif Bhittai–our guide and anchor into the ancient, mystical knowledges across river and ocean–we attune our bodies and senses to the hidden rhythms of soaking ecologies. We come together to listen to sounds that reverberate in the delta, to wrestle with the task of seeing and engage with alternate modes of remembering and relating.
