Billie-Ray Belcourt's (Driftpile Cree Nation) 2017 essay, "The body remembers when the world broke open," is now up on the webiste (Musagetes). 


Belcourt's analysis of "In Memoriam," my 2012 video, places it within a feral archive. 


Belcourt writes, "...In Memoriam plays up a form of corporeal excess that bubbles just below a collective “threshold of awareness” for those who most intimately bear the coloniality of the world. Lukin Linklater tells a story about how memory stalks the present, turning bodies into faulty containers for affect such that life becomes a catch-22 where ongoingness taxes. We might not get the big decolonial world we want, as it takes everything we have to adjust to the unruly vibrations of the past-present."
