“The Limit Does Not Exist”: Betsy Aoki, Zeina Hashem Beck, Sun Yung Shin & Yanyi
Sunday, November 20, 2022 @ 3:30 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Breakpoint by Betsy Aoki exquisitely blends technology and the Asian American experience in an evocative mixture of sensual experiences, and mathematically infused linguistic patterns. Formally electrifying – from lyrics and triptychs to ghazals and Zeina Hashem Beck‘s own duets, in which English and Arabic echo and contradict each other – O explores the limits of language, notions of home and exile, and stirring visions of motherhood, memory, and faith. Smashing the hierarchies of god and humanity, heaven and hell, in favor of indigenous Korean shamanism and animism, The Wet Hex by Sun Yung Shin layers an apocalyptic revision of nineteenth-century imagery of the sublime over the present, conjuring a reality at once beautiful and terrible. Yanyi‘s Dream of the Divided Field: Poems examines a body breaking down and a body that rebuilds in limitless and boundary-shifting ways, moving through homes in memory of love and isolation, lust and alienation, tenderness and violence, suffering and wonder.
