A Queer Eco-Feminist Poetry Tour
By Jess X. Chen and Demian DinéYazhi'
SOLASTALGIA: (n.) The pain experienced when the place where one resides or one loves is under immediate assault.
SOLASTALGIA: a queer eco-feminist poetry tour featuring the transdisciplinary works and performances of Chinese-American migrant artist JESS X SNOW and Indigenous Diné artist Demian DinéYazhi founder of RISE: Radical Indigenous Survivance & Empowerment. Through poetry and public art, their work embodies the form of time travel and recalls narratives of queerness, love, trauma, fantasy, and survivance. Their work is a reclamation of inherited lands, ancestors, and cultures lost to post-apocalyptic colonial violence. Through poetry they create indigenous and immigrant futures in the time of our current ecological collapse.
Loved by our collective!
