Poetry. Weaving together the half-lives of familial, personal, cultural and ecological histories, SEDIMENT & VEIL investigates landscape, memory and inheritance to trouble the power structures and violences that both mediate these relationships and inscribe themselves into our DNA in the process. SEDIMENT & VEIL is an incantation that moves through the debris of these institutions in order to be located by the generative reshuffling and reassembling of their narrative pieces.
