Becoming Palm

Simryn Gill & Michael Taussig - Becoming Palm
Becoming Palm is the outcome of a conversation between two friends, artist Simryn Gill and anthropologist Michael Taussig, addressing the complexities of palm oil and “the enormous transformations, human, and ecological, that this crop engenders” (Taussig) in two disparate geographical locations, Southeast Asia and South America.
Michael Taussig is anthropologist and professor at The EGS – European Graduate School.

Born 1959 in Singapore, Simryn Gill lives and works in Sydney, Australia, and Port Dickson, Malaysia.
