Common Aliens: Diaspora in Time is a curatorial project presented by Atelier Céladon, to work through the feeling of being in time in an unmappable terrain of bodies. In prioritizing the voices of Indigenous and people of colour, we are assembling a program that centers the knowledge gained through lived temporalities in the practical effort to build up our networks of solidarity. Think what it can mean to prioritize occupying time over space, to find our portals in between time through glass bowls. Our bodies speak to each other. They sound the depths together, recognizing that there is no desire that is not collective and no desire that does not create.
