Show Notes

Andrea and Arif speak to Overexposed resident Devin Hentz about embodiment in fashion, garment archaeology and afrofuturism.

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.

Andrea Gonzalez and Arif Kornweitz of Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee produce this series of conversations with residents about artefacts that have moved their practice in a lasting way. Devin's artefact is an excerpt from the film 'The Last Angel of History'.

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.
