Haenyeo: Community, Politics and Change; An exchange between Dr Anne Hilty and Mikhail Karikis
Special Program: May 14. (Wed) 7pm
A discussion between Dr. Hong Sunyoung and haenyeo from Daepyeong Village, Seogwipo City
SeaWomen (2012) is a video installation on Jeju Haehyeo. It questions the meanings of aural subcultures in activating a sense of professional identity and solidarity through the sharing of a common purpose in sound making. Building on Karikis’ previous exploration of the human voice as a sculptural and geopolitical sonic tool (Sounds from Beneath: Whitechapel Gallery, 2012; Manifesta 9, Tate, 2012; Tate, 2014), this video installation examines specifically the role of aural subcultures in community formation. Significantly, SeaWomen’s perspective presents a non-Western example of aural production generated by women, and raises questions about the under-theorisation of non-Western aural feminist practices and discourse
