Storytelling and Activism: Mx. Sugar Mamasota and Sara Meghdari
This episode hosts two Interviews as part of the project “SheddingSomethingShedding” with artists
Mx. Sugar Mamasota and Sara Meghdari in conversation with Brandon Perdomo– all 3 based in Brooklyn, New York.
Before the interviews, Brandon Perdomo is in conversation with Romina Achatz about the power of Oral History and our current situation.
SHEDDINGSOMETHINGSHEDDING is space where practice meets testimony, as independent artists share their stories of becoming in a reimagining of a salon-style gathering in a digital space.
Exploring both creative process and the embodied experiences that informs their practices, this multicultural and intergenerational project aims to encourage curiosity & wonder, and reclamation of narrative power to communities often both unheard and negotiated as other.
Themes explored in this work include ancestry, prejudice & discrimination, sex, LGBTQ+, anger, violence, trauma, community organizing and advocacy, prejudice & racism, fear, longing, love, solidarity, experience of being in a body, art & creation.
Creative process for the purpose of this work concerns makers of performance, visual, and social practice works, including community advocacy, building, and organizing.
The curator of this show is Brandon Perdomo, an interdisciplinary artist from the occupied territories of Lenapehoking, currently known as New York City – fascinated with self-reflection and alterity, which are the engines of his interventions. Interested in contemporary politics, ancestral negotiation and the intricate manners in which the body is perceived in the public sphere, his social practice turns toward stories of radical self-ownership, and what it means to “become.”
