Five Feet High and Rising is a museographic essay that conceives the longing and compulsion for rivers as a space of encounter for different cultures and subjectivities. The wide range of elements in the installation narrates a somewhat esoteric cultural history of rivers, which charts and merges different stories of movement, migration and fragmentation while drifting through a combination of literature, images and music that make reference to small and large waterways.

Five Feet High and Rising will be presented in SB13 as both an installation and DJ lecture, which in the form of a personal narrative disrupts and traverses chronological time and directs the overflow of these disparate rivers together into a new performative stream.

All SAF events are free and open to the public
