Chuquimamani-Condori & Joshua Chuquimia Crampton - Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter
Auto Italia is pleased to announce Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter, the first international solo exhibition by US-based artists Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia) and Joshua Chuquimia Crampton. In a newly commissioned moving image, the artists, who are members of the Pakaxa Aymara nation, enact a ceremony for their grandmother and explore their family’s rituals around death.
Underpinned by the nation’s abolitionist traditions as inseparable from the Black radical tradition, this project attests to different spacetimes and ways of imagining as ‘abolition geographies’ (Ruthie Gilmore Wilson, 2017).
Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter is commissioned by Auto Italia and produced by Auto Italia, London; Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève and Haus der Kunst, Munich.
