Thanks for Nothing has invited Franco-Colombian collective NOMASMETAFORAS


NOMASMETAFORAS is a Franco-Colombian collective composed of artist Julian Dupont and Clara Melniczuk, researcher in philosophy at Paris 8 University, specializing in post-colonial and decolonial studies.
Living and working between Paris and Colombia, the collective explores performance as a method of philosophical investigation. As part of their artistic residency at La Cité Internationale des Arts, NOMASMETAFORAS studies the relationship between dreams and medicinal plants through the project “Dreaming the pluriverse”, a counter-conference performed around a ritual setup.
How to rebuild a relationship with the land through a defamiliarization of the self?
How to relate to the land without reproducing a ‘colonial way of inhabiting’ the land?

NOMASMETAFORAS’ performance was presented in advance of an exhibition focused on artistic practices from Central and South American dedicated to communal and decolonial activism.
This exhibition, curated by Ilaria Conti and organized by Thanks for Nothing, will be held in Spring 2023. More to come soon!
