Everyone Spits Chicken Bones is work born from a lifetime’s worth of gestating. April Lin 林森 revisits the familiar and familial site of the Cantonese dimsum meal, retracing the bridge between body and memory, invitation and manipulation. Originally appearing to the artist as a dream, this performance is made manifest through the flesh as an experiment, a desire, and a shedding.

How can food act simultaneously as a mediator of care, intergenerational trauma, and the diasporic experience?

Content Warnings:

Explores themes of emotional manipulation. This work will also include chicken and chicken bones as part of the performance.

April Lin 林森

April Lin 林森 (b. 1996, Stockholm — they/them) is an interdisciplinary artist and independent curator investigating image-making and world-building as sites for the construction, sustenance, and dissemination of co-existent yet conflicting truths. They interweave moving image, performance, creative computing and installation in a commitment to centring oppressed knowledges, building an ethics of collaboration around reciprocal care, and exploring the linkages between history, memory, and interpersonal and structural trauma. Their work has been shown at the Museum of the Moving Image New York, Sheffield DocFest, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, HOME, and NOWNESS Asia.
