Becoming Palm is the outcome of a conversation between two friends, artist Simryn Gill and anthropologist Michael Taussig responding to oil palm plantations and “the enormous transformations, human, and ecological, that this crop engenders” (Michael Taussig) in two remote geographical locations, Southeast Asia and South America.
Becoming Palm will be launched on Saturday, 29 April 2017 in conjunction with the Singapore Art Book Fair 2017.
