Black Case Volume III after Joseph Jarman brings together a series of works; video Tiger Vision (2021) by Dipesh Pandya, incantation Trigger Warning! Trigger Warning! (2020) by Swan Nemesis, and a soundscape by Nina Radio Tapes + Ice Cream Mafia.

Journey into a parallel plane where Animism, Buddhism, Islam, Rastafari, Sufi and Vedic rituals from Hinduism coexist in the hypnotic tensions created from incantation, sound, non-linear time and ancient cosmologies.

Black Case Volume III after Joseph Jarman is an immersive, multi-sensory audiovisual installation; exploring myth and memory through a meditation on intergenerational trauma, transcultural space, the spirit realm and interspecies communication. Using the art of lyricism as weaponry, words act as a warning for the present, acknowledging the horrors of the past and forewarning possible futures.

A series of new live performances by Swan Nemesis, Dipesh’s alter ego, a mythical form of female energy from the future, will re-activate the installation space at specific times during the opening and closing weekends of the Biennale.

The featured incantation: Trigger Warning! Trigger Warning! (2020) was originally conceived and written as part of Nothing Gentle Will Remain an online group show and print publication curated by Lydia Antoniou, Caterina Guadagno, Nora Kovacs, Titus Nouwens and William Rees; in partnership with Open School East, Margate and MA Curating Contemporary Art Programme Graduate Projects 2020, Royal College of Art, London.
