I grew up listening to younger elders talkin’ stylishly, solemnly, greasy about what they did to maintain self. I later learned that they were usually talking about illegal substances — ancient processes, ones people close to me enjoyed, ones that shouldn’t be illegal at all… “I give you the seed-bearing plants and herbs to use,” ones that were only made illegal to prevent the Hearsts and other tycoons from losing money — different forms of the decorative noose and trying to make the moon look like a warning.— Devin Kenny

About Episode 9
In 2Maintain, the ninth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, Devin Kenny undertakes various forms of Black self-care and sociality, exploring why some are considered harmless and others are criminalized. He tends to houseplants using a nail clipper, a tool normally associated with human hygiene, and presents a new song, “if you get arrested (demo),” as well as an original poem. 2Maintain interrogates the notion of maintenance in our time, presenting a juxtaposition between two current realities: police are to maintain the status quo, while self-care is to maintain the spirit.

About Episode 8
In Ziyarat (زیارت), the eighth episode of StorefrontTV Season 3, Samaneh Moafi conducts a “pilgrimage” to the Dez and Karkheh rivers in the Khuzestan Province of southwest Iran. This performative retelling of a story by writer and anthropologist Jalal al-e Ahmad weaves together personal, media, and archival documentation. Ziyarat (زیارت) uses installation, objects, imagery, and movement to shed light upon the maintenance of the sugarcane industry and its relationship to water and the ecology of place.
