We think we have ideas. We think we can build shit.
But we’re just meat. We’re just so soft.
What happens to our bodies after we die? Ashes pollute rivers. Buried bodies take up real estate. Bringing video and performance into intimate conversation, MukhAgni is an automythography about a relationship in process. In a bedroom in Brooklyn, in a Calcutta charnel ground, two queer colored lovers play dead.
