Hannah Catherine Jones: Owed To Bussa 2.0 (2019)

2 x opposing flatscreen monitors with digital video; sound.

Owed to Bussa (2016) is the first in Hannah Catherine Jones’ Diasporic Oweds series of investigations into her own embodied Afrofuturism. Newly reconfigured as an installation, Jones infuses the historical figure of Bussa with her sense of ever-expanding research practice. A digital scrapbook of her internet browsing history– simultaneously experienced and shared with her audience as a form of collective and actionable history.

Hannah Catherine Jones aka Foxy Moron is a London based artist, researcher, radio presenter (NTS Radio; BBC Radio), composer and conductor, and founder of Peckham Chamber Orchestra. Jones often performs under the pseudonym Foxy Moron– creating works that juxtapose ancient musical modalities (Mixolydian, Phrygian) with sci-fi timbres to produce what she calls ‘sonic antagonisms’– a vehicle for the artist to explore the conceptual possibilities of Afrofuturism.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
