In this episode of APHIDS LISTENS, Mish Grigor speaks with Sri Lankan born Australian artist Amaara Raheem about their performance practice based around the breath and wind, across poetic and political associations. Amaara reflects on a work seen long ago at a festival far away, and how formative arts experiences can create foundations that we explore in our practice for many years to come.

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.
