Description

A Greater Miracle of Perception. Miracle Workers Collective is formed and informed by a transdisciplinary and transnational community sharing and developing an ecology of practices within the framework of the 58th International Art Exhibition. Their proposition underscores a critical engagement with collectivity, and practices that articulate the notion of the miracle as a poetic vehicle from which to expand what can be perceived, experienced, done, and imagined. Drawing upon Esiaba Irobi’s reflections of the miracle as “a trope of spiritual and political resistance” and as “an act of community”, the Collective’s approach connotes a disciplinary disobedience that emphasises the constant questioning of perception as a political act.
