In this episode, Lara Thoms speaks with multi-talented artist, dancer and choreographer Amrita Hepi, a Bundjulung and Ngapuhi woman interested in movement as manifested by all bodies. Amrita is a curatorial consultant with RISING Festival and a collaborating artist with APHIDS on our upcoming work for the festival, EASY RIDERS.

This episode dives deep into the gaze, pashing and the video OTHER — a fast paced montage of film clips depicting attraction between races by Tracey Moffatt.

APHIDS LISTENS is an alternative archive where artists share a work they’ve made, and a work they’ve loved.

APHIDS acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Boon wurrung peoples on whose lands we live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded and we pay our respect to past, present, and future Aboriginal elders and community, and to their long and rich history of artmaking on this Country.
