Pink Waves

Nakayasu, Sawako

Regular price $19.95 Sale

Written in loose sonata form, 
Pink Waves is a poem of radiant elegy and quiet protest. Moving through the shifting surfaces of inarticulable loss, and along the edges of darkness and sadness, Pink Waves was completed in the presence of audience members over the course of a three-day durational performance. Sawako Nakayasu accrues lines written in conversation with Waveform by Amber DiPietro and Denise Leto, and micro-translations of syntax in the Black Dada Reader by Adam Pendleton, itself drawn from Ron Silliman’s KetjakPink Waves holds an amalgamation of texts, constructing a shimmering haunting of tenderness, hunger, and detritus.
