AN HOUR WITH: Jupiter Child
For this december edition of AN HOUR WITH, Jupiter Child will talk about liberation practices og collaboration continuity and how both are an integrated part of their artistic practice and thinking. Also relating to how their origin and upbringing in a postcolonial Mozambique and the later move to Denmark, has shaped and informed their artistic expressions and ways of working - with examples from previous and upcoming artworks and performances.
Julia Machindano who uses the artist name Jupiter Child (b. 1982) is a performance and visual artist from Mozambique, living in Copenhagen.
In her/their work, Jupiter Child draws inspiration and energy from black culture and African history, mainly from the indigenous Makonde people, who resisted colonial rule with great vigour right up until the 1975s. Jupiter Child combines conceptual theatre, dance, music, spoken word, creative writing and storytelling with objects and tapestries, photographic work and collages in an artistic oeuvre that can be described primarily as queer and anti-colonial interventions and revelations. With feminism, black queerness and black empowerment, Jupiter Child's art forms a force field against a colonialist world.
