“A Topography of Excesses” is an artistic research project that investigates technologies of birth control vis à vis colonial processes of production of race, gender, and sexuality. This lecture examines how the conception of ‘excess’ — attributed to those marginalized by Eurocentric framings of body, knowledge, sexuality, and subjectivity — is fundamentally linked to colonial violences. In this project, the artist offers a historical reframing meant to subvert and reject colonial narratives, and to nurture conversations on the medicalization of bodies, notions of ‘radical care,’ the poetic dimensions of herbal remedies, and a re-centering of indigenous and folk knowledges.
