This book 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. It is based on lectures by Taussig and Gill, presented at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore on 13 January 2016, following Gill's exhibition 'Hugging the Shore' (27 March-14 June 2015). The exhibition and related events took place under NTU CCA's curatorial framework 'Place.Labour.Capital'.
