Presented with BEDLAM Festival.
What if the depression we endure is not just about biochemical disfunction, but the result of political failure?
Ann Cvetkovich suggests we have incomplete projects of liberation and I tend to agree; decolonisation, feminism, civil rights. We have the wounds of incomplete projects but what if the bandages are on too tight? What if the wounds need cleaning, investigating or maybe the wound just needs to see the light?
I’m Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired examines historical traumas in the everyday felt sensations of our lives. It’s about the domestic and the grand; maybe the depression we feel is the result of being the other for so long? ... The energy it has taken to survive, endure, resist and have hope against it all.
