The Bad Vibes Club presents Sophie Mallett, who will be leading a live listening and screening session. In this speculative docufiction video, jellyfish are cast as the protagonists of a new era in geopolitics. Global warming has disrupted ocean currents and their dependent trade routes, simultaneously halting trade relationships and enabling epic blooms of our gelatinous overlords.
Sophie Mallett is a London based artist. Her practice is concerned with forms of belonging and exclusion, and how these manifest through national borders, capital and migration. Through video and installation she pursues a practice focused on sounds’ intersection with affect, politics and value, concentrating on the connections between history and place.
