Offering to Non-Celebrity Elements (2022)

“Vis-à-vis Western science’s presumption to predict the properties of something not yet discovered, in her performance Offering to Non-Celebrity Elements Maryam Katan takes the periodic table as a starting point to interrogate unchallenged beliefs in science and technology, advocating for collective, playful new sets of knowledge.”
