“I propose a conspiracy of orphans. We exchange winks. We reject hierarchies. All hierarchies. We take the shit of the world for granted and we exchange stories about how we nevertheless get by. We are impertinent. More than half the stars in the universe are orphan-stars belonging to no constellation. And they give off more light than all the constellation stars.”- John Berger, Confabulations
Researching sign language and the physical effects of trauma, Created a Monster have sought to discover how the body speaks and how contact can be made before and beyond words. We hope this project can be used to bring communities - of different abilities, languages and histories - together through a new form of the old art of silent storytelling.
This piece was created during the Voila! Residency at Rich Mix.
Supported by Balkans Production House.
