The Last Angel of History
Sonic Acts x JJJNNN
A podcast in collaboration with Sonic Acts, investigating pollution and its effects on everything living and non-living. The participants of the Sonic Acts OVEREXPOSED residency programme speak about artefacts that have moved their practice in a lasting way: from tenderness and floating schools to the Blues and The Last Angel of History.
In this episode, Andrea and Arif speak to Overexposed resident Devin Hentz about trash archives, data thieves and the death of clothes in Senegal.
Devin Hentz is an independent researcher and writer based in Dakar. Devin is interested in exploring the private experience of embodiment in what we choose to wear, as well as the global currents at play in getting certain items on and off of our bodies. Thinking between contemporary art and dress practices, she interrogates and sometimes intervenes in the black visual ecumene. Devin works with words, images and cloth as sites for play and to develop transcultural connections. She is currently pursuing a Masters in Fashion Studies from Parsons School of Design, New York.
Presented and produced by Andrea Gonzalez and Arif Kornweitz of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee. With additional production by Monty Mouw.
