During his research stay in late 2020 on the small Pacific island of Pongso no Tao, Joeri Verbesselt went through an existential crisis about his nascent audiovisual artistry. The crisis confronted him with questions he had not been prepared for during his art education. He also could not have predicted that he would be conducting artistic research so far from home on an island struggling with concrete colonial operations and global capitalism. Inspired by Indigenous scholars and artists, he attempts to uncover how a practice of artistic extractivism can become more grounded.
