Marina Roy - Queuejumping
|Publisher||Information Office/ Vancouver|
Encyclopaedic in form, Marina Roy’s ‘Queuejumping’ eloquently unspools manifestations of capitalist, colonialist, agrologic, and scientific impulses, all within the context of the letter Q. Roy enlists art writing, poetry, lists, found images, and essays on humankind’s hunger to supersede the Other (in order to uphold what she calls “the vertically directed world”) in this artfully academic work. From queens, queers, quadrupeds, and the Quran, to quick, quiddity, and quotidian, and from millions of years of organic decay to contemplating contemporary art, dive into the origins of hegemonic forces, what is lost by winning, and what can be gained by stepping out of line.
