About Naomi Rincon Gallardo

“My (under)worldmakings tell entangled stories of creatures who craft obstacles for progress and development. Or more precisely: creatures who become themselves the obstacles. In my practice I try to articulate an embodied theory intertwined with nature and matter: a theory that can be danced, smelled, and touched. I build exuberant, crafty and low cost elaborated handmade paraphernalia and attires. I embrace degraded aesthetics that involve no mastery but inventive capacities and affective manual labor. In my aspiration to interanimate a queer reasoning with a decolonial imperative, I find a zone of contact that attempts to recover the pulse of life in its multiplicity, ambiguity and unpredictability.”
