Géraldine Longueville works on the sensorial transmission of political, medicinal, and botanical information. It is how she tackles knowledge about plants and our living surroundings, and transmits—both orally and through direct experience—knowledge and knowhow that have been forgotten.
Since 2014, she has realized a number of performances and exhibitions at Centre Pompidou Paris, CAC Brétigny, Bétonsalon Paris, Performa New York, De Appel Amsterdam, Liverpool Biennial.
Géraldine was invited by Maud Jacquin and Sébastien Pluot (Art By Translation program) to work within the project Affaires Étrangères/Negócios Estrangeiros, organised as part of the France-Portugal 2022 Season.
During her time at AiR351, she stayed 3 weeks in Cascais and one week in S. Miguel, Azores. She collected leftovers, picking up shells, seeds, plastic, and metal fragments on the beach. Géraldine researched cane sugar plantations, local and global. Melaço, bitter orange and peppers. She found stories about Alfenim and she’s trying to make candies that translate both sweetness and bitterness of our common history.
