I am a poet and translator living and working on unceded Gubbi Gubbi Country. My research project is bogged on about half a page of Alain Badiou’s preface to Saint Paul where he discusses the works of George Bataille, Jean Genet and Pier Paolo Pasolini and their individual approaches to the dialectic of the sublime and abjection.
My Archival Zone takeover theme came about after watching the holocaust documentary film Shoah. I completed the film over a couple days and took hundreds of screenshots. It was a hard film to shake off and the late poet Sean Bonney’s final collection Our Death provided me with many distractions and diversions as did the music of The Pogues.
