by Moshumee T. Dewoo

Breach draws from the wisdom of Africa and the African human experience to urge reconsideration of conventional notions of a home as sheltered assurance of belonging. Instead, it embraces the notion of not having a home and therefore not belonging, where this would mean revelling in liquidness, incompleteness, boundlessness – liberating potential.

“During the waning days of Britain’s rule in India, its last viceroy, Lord Louis Mountbatten, turned to Mahatma Gandhi and said in exasperation, ‘If we just leave, there will be chaos’ and Gandhi calmly replied, ‘Yes, but it will be our chaos.’ Dewoo’s collection of poems resonates with the Gandhian necessity for each society to continuously breach identity formation and performance in its own self-engendered chaotized order/other; to undauntingly breach zero-sum regimes of home(lessness), power(lessness), and (im)mobility.” Hassan Mbiydzenyuy Yosimbom, Interdisciplinary Literature Scholar
