The Liquid Club #11: Invernomuto & Jim C. Nedd

Join us on the third Thursday of every month as the Liquid Club returns to invite collective exploration of the ideas and practices inherent in the upcoming Biennial edition. We move online for a new series focused on sound, listening and aural practices. The events will feature LB2021 artists including Lamin Fofana, Jamila Johnson-Small and Ayesha Hameed alongside invited guest speakers.

Delivered in partnership with online radio station Melodic Distraction, the events will expand our experiential knowledge of sound through testing the limits of our preconceived understanding of music and musical tradition. Deepening our knowledge base through seeking, assimilating and evaluating new sonic experiences.

Beginning the series, we invite collective Invernomuto & Jim C. Nedd to explore Colombian pico culture as a continuation of their work investigating the remnants of subcultures and their individual research practices into sound.

Taking the lead from their forthcoming new film work Grito – Las Brisas de Febrero (2021), being premiered during the Liverpool Biennial in 2021, Invernomuto & Jim C. Nedd present a dynamic hour of listening, discussion and contemplation. Featuring pre-recorded interviews captured during the production of the new video installation alongside music, field recordings and conversation, they explore Colombian pico culture – where customised sound systems or ‘picos’ go head-to-head playing Afro-Colombian records, animating the street parties of the country’s Atlantic Coast.

The Liquid Club

Launched in 2019 to expand the conceptual thinking behind the Liverpool Biennial’s 11th edition, the Liquid Club began as a monthly critical reading and discussion group where we asked how we can conceive of our body beyond its concrete physical boundaries.

Departing from Anthropologist Eduardo Viveiros de Castro; Exchanging Perspectives looking at how to escape from Western patriarchal and colonialist ideas surrounding the body and the conception of the human, alongside Sylvia Wynter’s interview with Katherine McKittrick On Being Human as Praxis (2015) before going on to read texts from Denise Ferreira da Silva, Félix Guattari and Rosi Braidotti among others. Throughout the series the group discussed ideas around subjectivity, Western patriarchal and colonialist ideas surrounding the body, nomadism and posthumanism.

The 2020/21 Liquid Club is brought to you in partnership with Melodic Distraction Radio. An independent internet radio station, online magazine and events programmer situated in the heart of Liverpool.
