“What is safe?”

Words and Music by Metta Sáma

EXCERPTS:

“King’s book is not quiet; hers is an aesthetics of sound fractured, fragmented, compounded, mixed, remixed, sampled, jointed, yes, even anointed. (Check out the cover of this book, it’s sparseness of image, this blaringly red background, these glaringly gray figures, mouths open. Caught mid-pounce (whose in danger? (you must be asking yourself!)).”

 

“Connecting the body to art (as that which comes from the body, which lives in the body, which defends the body, which deceives the body, which destroys the body, which provides passageways to forgive the body, to recreate the body) art to philosophy (what is the body, what are its limitations, its excesses, can we discard the body) philosophy to politics (who owns the body, who has rights to the body, who deserves (health) care for the body) carries us (noisily) through these (full-bodied) explorations.”
