Post)? Colonial Soup is a durational installation conceived by Maria Magdalena, Seunghee Cho, Vlad(a) and Kaya of the Ynapmoc collective. The installation will span over the course of two days – 1st and 2nd of June and will be live-streamed throughout its entirety.


On Thursday, four solo works will be shown each focusing on a different personal experience of/with (post)coloniality. 

16:30 - 17:30
In Upiór, Maria Magdalena will focus on the void created as a result from the erasure of Polish culture during the 19th and 20th century. Conducting a ritualistic performance in the persona of an upiór they will be working with symbolic objects, draped fabrics, spoken and written poetry. All in hope of purging her frustration and anger coming from the distortion of Polish history by colonialism, and current anti-queer politics in Poland.

17:40 - 18:20 
In The Independence Gate, Seunghee Cho will perform and represent Korean identity through the mediums of drawing and writing. The reason for expressing the given identity is not to forget that Koreans had protected it from colonialism. This work is to serve the purpose of archiving and remembering different aspects of Korean identity that were deemed to be erased through past colonial conquests.

18:40 - 19:30 
In Cacophony, Vlad(a) will present a performative lecture on Ukrainian queer and anarchist anti-colonial resistance through the centuries. Shape shifting in between queer(?) deities of the past, 20th century anarchist revolutionaries and present day queer fighters, they will examine the points of intersection of these anti-colonial struggles in the face of the ongoing russian invasion of Ukraine. The projection mapping for the piece is to be done by Wei Hsuan Chen (Noble).
19:50 - 20:50
Kaya’s J’Ouvert will approach Trinidadian rituals and culture through the caricatures and ‘mas’ of Trinidad carnival. Kaya will transform into ‘jab jab’, the devil inviting the audience to ridicule the oppressor with her. Inwoven throughout is the theme of communal eating. Encouraging the audience to identify their connection to food, (post) colonial identity, and how sharing food and preparing food together can unify.
On Friday, the group will reassemble in an effort to build a structure representative of both their personal and collective experiences. The installation will culminate in a communal dinner being held within that structure for which the audience is welcome to join.
