Drift to Wonder is a special event of the current exhibition, Ancestral Fortune, which invites you to explore being in relation with nature and going beyond your human self. During the event, you will be welcomed with special drinks and guided by a sound piece both created by Natalia Sorzano.


The sound piece is a part of a research process that Sorzano has gathered during field visits to natural and reclaimed locations in the Netherlands. The work builds upon a project titled Mud, the viscous band consisting of a music band made of monster-like characters assembled from natural and recycled materials, such as tree trunks, rocks, ceramics, waste fabrics and plastics.

With this project, Sorzano explores desire through sound, chants and story-telling. In this sound piece, Sorzano includes excerpts of Sara Ahmed’s text Orientations: Toward a Queer Phenomenology as a point of departure, to imagine how one’s sense of tending toward can be diverted through the shape and sound of and from other non-human bodies.
