tensions/ oppositions in flight
- Aylwyn Walsh
Feeling through tensions
light and what is unlit
what is remembered but what should not have to be remembered, because it should have never happened*
time and its shadows
optimism and its impossibility
re-presenting the body in encounter.
Writing of Black Studies:
'enlightenment and darkness, blindness and insight, invisibility and hypervisibility, converge in the open obscurity of a field of study and a line of flight' (2018: x).
