Klau Kinki and Paula Pin
Klau Kinki and Paula Pin have both been taking part in the performance Becoming plant-witch-machine. In this interview, they talk about the background of the work where the performers Klau Kinki (Gynepunk), Paula Pin (Pechblenda) and Aniara Rodado have been gathered to do a workshop, installation and performance around DIY-DWO gynecology with a special guests, sound artist Oscar Martin physics artist Jean Marc Chomaz for Shadows.
To keep in touch with some of our cells, our fluids and the world, we do not consider plants as sole food resources or treating active principles repositories. Luckily, plants do come pick they and us up do not beat around the bush!
Based in scientific methodology and discipline and in the knowledge that comes thought the experience of each body, ancestral body wisdom. Like this, other gynepunks will ferment and mutate going fast forward to an explosive and expansive movement towards radical experiments, collective strong confidence, to build our-body politics. Something that is Vital to share and spread in infinite pandemonium’s.
Tinker our machines in order not to have to go to the lab dissecting our body liquids, do our own biopsies, color our urine, look at our uterus tissues as something less familiar than our kitchen. Bio-electro chemistry experimentation. Radical self-power.
Enhance our perception abilities, using our body as a constant experimentation field. Thank the frog allowing us to know the result of our pregnancy test. Mutualize all these knowledge’s, make them public and reachable. Transform the speculum or other electro-simulation devices into objects of pleasure and hack it all.
Give birth, abort, get high, bleed, rest. Medical and pharmaceuticals not only is a highly powerful biotechnological industry. Rather, one should not forget than all pharmacopeia are based on knowing plants, taking care of them, distil, mix, infuse, burn, and compact them.
