On the wall of Maryam Monalisa Gharavi’s studio is a still from Buñuel’s ‘Los Olvidados’, showing a blind man staring at a chicken. In the latest episode of the Overexposed Podcast, , made in collaboration with Sonic Acts, Andrea Gonzalez talks to Monalisa about demonology, infrastructure and how any blockage to the vision of regimes that govern by making visible, is seen as a threat. Addressing the similarities between the commodities oil and data, Monalisa points to extraction as a defining factor of capitalism. Reading from her manuscript ‘Exhaust’, she states: ‘Capital is dead labor, vampire-like, living only by sucking living labor.”
Sonic Acts hosts six participants in the home-based residency programme 'Overexposed' which deals with pollution and its effects on everything living and non-living.
Maryam Monalisa Gharavi is an artist, poet, and theorist whose work deals with the paradoxes of our interactions with matter and immateriality, the seen and unseen, underlying everyday life and its common preconceptions.
