still

By Anahita Jamali Rad

still interrogates alienated interiority. It begins with a body, with materiality that slowly morphs, extends, spills, and oozes. A self-withdrawn, hidden presence: silent inactivity, affective and extractive capitalism, surveillance and commodification of behaviour, non-participation, withdrawn complicity, non-subjectivity and refusing a gaze, paralysis in time of crisis – what non-doing undoes. still proposes an alternative to action, a way to be the wrench in the cogs of the machine, a way to jam the signal by refusing receptivity.
