Mi You

Embodying Earth in Eurasia

Narrative practice is an embodied practice connecting and (un)folding multiple timespaces. Mi You's research, teaching and curatorial work turns around Eurasian geographical imaginations. At once a geographical and geopolitical space, Eurasia offers rich narrative sources of mythologies, stories and tools of navigation — physically and metaphysically. With these, Eurocentric and nationalistic narratives are resisted by constantly mapping, remapping and unmapping. Technologies to-come fold ancient technology into the futuristic, and align the cosmos with the techne. The ontology of land, body, and the spiritual realm in the light of ever-unabating transformations are recast. In Mi You's practice, research lingers in life, while in the video, a narrative becomes an embodied enaction.
