Anna Tjé presents Poetic RM². The project explores fruits of the future or so-called "exotic" fruits. It is based on Anna Tjé's ongoing research on matrilineal narratives and realistic-magical bodies which try to gain agency and repair themselves in the anti-erotic society.
Connected to her recent work Safou Lover, she reviews her transdisciplinary practice and sheds light on the political emergency of some issues such as ancestrality, utopian memory archives, spaces to rejoice, healing and care practices.
