There are new suns / Bruised blossoms

Have a poem ‘phantasmic folds’ featured in this collection of poetry ‘There are new suns / Bruised blossoms’, alongisde work from a host others including James Goodwin, Sean Bonney, Diane di Prima, Mei Mei Berssenbrugge and manuel arturo abreu. The collection accompanied an exhibition ‘Life constantly escapes’ held at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, Vienna, which also held a sound piece I produced in collaboration with Anuka Ramischwili-Schafer. Hopefully this will be available publicly soon.

Abbas Zahedi, Mira Mattar, Fred Moten and Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge

A few new pieces from last couple months

I had a great conversation on social practice, sacred spaces and formal concerns with artist Abbas Zahedi in this interview for AQNB.

I wrote a review-essay as a response to Mira Mattar’s Yes, I Am A Destroyer; a weaving, poetic book interrogating gender, labour and sensuousness.

Lastly a review on Fred Moten and Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge’s recent collections has been published in the latest Poetry London issue, titled ‘Quantum Entanglements’.

Recent work: Actress, Lamin Fofana Interview, Lumin Journal and more

Few things I’ve been working on in the last couple months:

An interview with Lamin Fofana out on the current issue of the Wire Mag – check out a new mix by him here

A review of Actress’ new album Karma & Desire for the Quietus, and a review of Timothy Duval’s new album Help.

Some poetry released in the latest issue of LUMIN Journal.

Also poetry contributions in the weird folds: everyday poems from the anthropocene (Dostoyevsky Wannabe) and We Want It All: An Anthology of Radical Trans Poetics (Nightboat Books)
