The Clam’s Kiss | Sogi a le faisua is a multilingual journal dedicated to forms of transoceanic relation, creativity, and knowledge, edited by Curatorial Researcher-in-Residence Dr Léuli Eshrāghi with Senior Curator Peta Rake.
The journal shares essays, reflections, interviews and poems in the spirit of the ceremonial and political practices of reciprocity and affirmation evidenced in the sogi practice (shared breath of life or ritualised kiss); a practice common across many Great Ocean cultures but restricted in a time of planetary health crisis. Together with select contributors to the publication, participants will read and discuss these important texts in an interdisciplinary gathering of UQ graduate students, early career researchers and select local and international colleagues.
