Huge thanks to Jupiter Woods for their support and for hosting this event.
Metamorph is a multi-disciplinary project that revisits the myth of Daphne through a transcultural and multi-species lens. It uses queer methodologies and transmedia storytelling techniques to shift the narrative around the agency of the character in their becoming-tree.
In the traditional representation of this story, Daphne’s transformation has been interpreted as an '𝘦𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘴𝘪𝘭𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦' or '𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 '. We see a portal to a holistic metamorphosis, maybe. A becoming inalienably, inextricably enmeshed in a tangled network: 𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗲/𝗱 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿.
Keep an eye out for announcements of events, exhibitions and performances in London and Margate.
Thanks to Jupiter Woods, Mimosa house and Well projects for working with us to share this work in its many different guises. And thanks to James Holcombe for supporting us with ups and downs of 16mm film production.
