A longing for togetherness – for love – shows insistently in this 17th edition of MOMENTA Biennale de l’image. The artists and authors invite us to forge intimate kinships with nonhuman life-worlds. They propose that we listen to – and observe, smell, touch, speak to – the land, the water, the air not with the aim of distantly understanding, grasping, or exploiting, but to resonate, to vibrate, to be together. Or, perhaps, with no aim at all. They make room for stories that dwell in the blurred boundaries between technology and ancestral wisdoms, weaving in both human and nonhuman modes of knowing. They celebrate that we are in relation with nature, that we are of nature.
