CO_EX_EN is exploring sites where ceremony, culture, exchange and celebrations were held. Sites where connection between multiple worlds coexisted but now the conversation has ceased. Sites where thresholds of physical and spiritual coexisted now lay barren and void. Some sites never remembered, some fenced with signposts explaining their past uses. How do we maintain and honour these sites? How do we continue the stories in these sites of significance? How do we reactivate these sites and transpose as our ancestors once did? Who is responsible for this maintenance and reactivation? CO_EX_EN is exploring these questions.
