The Outcasted Entities and Non-Linguistic Narrative

This contribution examines Natasha Tontey's artistic practice in relation to the notion of outcasted entities, particularly cockroaches and stone in Minahasan Indonesian culture, approaching them through a non-linguistic mode of communication. While both the cockroach and stone culture in Minahasa are outcasted entities, they help her to reflect, to imagine, and to dwell with questions related to fear, stigma, and embodied knowledge.
