Hilo Azul, 2016

The poet and artist invokes ancient matriarchal cultures, Indigenous folkways, and the speculative capacities of language so that we might rediscover our kinship with nature.

        she’s a very generous soul, I get into this awkward thing with indigenous folks when they have kinds of magical thinking about conserving/recovering something essentialist from a kind of mythological past, not that I argue with them but it does shut down avenues of conversations about the powers of capital, the limits of language/re-presentation, and the like, so mostly I just try and bear witness and be supportive as I can and in cases like with her to enjoy the art as art.

      • I’m sorry for my late reply. Most important is to keep all channels open, as I think you wrote here. Then us humans could really get somewhere toward trying alternate modes of thinkingbeing.
