Don’t miss naakita f.k.’ upcoming residency presentation! You will have the chance to view the work completed during their residency at Ada X. The presentation will be followed by a discussion with the writer and researcher Lindsay Leblanc.

During their residency at Ada X, naakita f.k. developed a new multimedia installation titled I was once seafloor. Using place-based research, 360˚ audio and video capture and material experimentation, the project centers rock, sediment, and the history of mineral extraction. This exploration contributes to the artist’s ongoing research, where they use haunting as metaphor and methodology to reflect on changing landscapes and their relationships to humans and other beings. The work proposes ways to reflect on what was once there but is no longer, while imagining the possible futures contained in the haunted place.
