Subash Thebe Limbu

  • Subash Thebe Limbu considers his works to be science fiction through an Indigenous lens, rooted in the language, script, songs, and symbols of the Yakthung (Limbu) peoples. He works with sound, film, music, performance, painting and podcast, tackling socio-political issues and struggles of resistance by using science fiction as speculative narration towards labor migration, climate change, and Indigeneity. Borrowing from Afrofuturism, the artist often likes to speak of an Adivasi Futurism, a portal that reorients and redefines progress, deconstructs nation-state concepts, and reimagines Indigenous people as the creators of interplanetary and interstellar civilisations of the future.
