Serpent River Book Workshop

As part of Caycedo’s expansive and ongoing project Be Dammed, the Serpent River Book is a fluctuating publication that can be performed with, read in many directions, and used as a score or workshop tool. Caycedo brings this book to the Henry to invite students and youth to interact with it through movement and experimental modes of reading. Images and texts within the 72-page accordion book explore the ways in which Columbian, Brazilian, and Mexican communities have been affected by the industrialization and privatization of river systems. By performing and experimenting with this non-linear and multi-layered book, participants will bring forward new ways to interpret and understand the connected and active nature of the river. 


This program is in conjunction with Carolina Caycedo’s visit as a Gurvich Contemporary Art Project artist. During her visit, Caycedo will engage in a range of programs that explore the geopolitics of water, collective resistance, and regional narratives that relate to her ongoing project Be Dammed, aspects of which are on view in the current exhibition Between Bodies.
