future friend/ships

By Keith Hennessy and Jassem Hindi
performance / installation / science fiction salon

Projecting oneself into the future is more often than not a privilege reserved to a happy few, and a way to reproduce sameness. future friend/ships casts a different kind of physical future fiction: we host the uninvited to conjure the curse. We are amateur oracles and oracle-making machines. We call upon fragments of raging poetry, broken machines, dying animals, and plastic flowers. We use arab future fiction and punk anxiety as excuses and models.

"...Keith Hennessy and Jassem Hindi, proved both passionate and tender. In “future friend/ships,” the two stage a defiant, poetic/political work, inspired by events in Syria, that gradually transforms chaos into hope."
