What’s in a scent? Histories, notes, memories—they come to light with the soft sigh of a fresh cologne or an old perfume. In eau de-colonial: scents for peripheral healing, Chaveli Sifre will use colognes and perfumes as a touchpoint with which to explore the history of migration and material extraction that lies at the heart of globalisation.
Join us as we distill and blend scents, discussing how colognes and their compositions relate to the history of our world and its borders. Raw materials will be provided for those looking to experiment at the NIGHT EMBASSY, forging new histories and uncovering relics of the past.
