Sara Manente (IT/BE): Wicked Technologies/Wild Fermentation

Wicked Technologies / Wild Fermentation is a project considering the ethics and aesthetics of fermentation in relation to artistic research. Queering, sampling, transferring a prototype, feeding, inoculating, oxygenating, tasting are processes involved in live cultures. Fermentation techniques challenge ideas of transformation, cannibalism, wildness, exuberance, excess, noise, opacity and death. During the residency in Buda, the project will focus on the research for a practice of the body in movement. Sara Manente is a choreographer, performance artist and amateur fermentress.
