Following our agropoetic endeavour around land struggle and agroecological resistance, this subsequent project examines a field closely connected: the complex notions and injustices surrounding the toxic and its ongoing power-plays, relations, and rhetorics that are deeply rooted in historical structures. Our aim is to open up a space for an artistic and critical registry that encourages us to pause and sense the toxic presences and textures otherwise, to acknowledge and mourn its ongoing victims, and to listen to the movement of its shadows. In so doing, we hope to shift sensibilities away from one of paranoid containment and fear to an outlook fueled by reflexivity and nuance, and to nurture the act of noticing how actions on the most intimate scale are closely tied to the global – as everywhere is ultimately a here.
