Les Bijoux Indiscrets, or, Paper Tigers (2017)


I am an artist working with language on the page, in performance, installation, translation, and through research. I am the author of Meat (2015), Fantasias in Counting (2014), and 12 Steps (2012), and the translator of Uljana Wolf’s Subsisters: Selected Poems (2017) and i mean i dislike that fate that i was made to where (2015). My performance piece Les Bijoux Indiscrets, or, Paper Tigers was presented at La MaMa Galleria in New York in March 2017, and most recently at Bold Tendencies in Peckham in September 2017. With Vahni Capildeo, I recently founded the multi-media and multi-genre performance collective GORGONIA.


I am currently a Junior Research Fellow in English at Queens’ College, University of Cambridge, finishing my first book, Provisional Avant-Gardes: Little Magazine Communities from Dada to Digital. My research interests include twentieth- and twenty-first-century avant-garde writing, performance, and video art; transhistorical print culture; poetics; translation and multi-lingual writing.
