David Wolach's Occultations helps us to consider, again and against, "what's created out of the rubble?" Through site-specific and embodied interrogations of biopolitical and militarized contact-zones, and procedural rituals of tactical magic, he shows us the "body signing in space," singing through the "post-industrial land-scrape clack." Here the body-in-crisis is not some theoretical abstraction but a lived condition, subject not only to the "surveillance-industrial complex" but also to the limitations of language's ability to fully articulate "what work this dying is". The page thus becomes for Wolach a (non)site of performance, the texts and counter-texts spewed and spat into a kind of splenetic life-force that "invade[s] yr lyric purity," negations that "organize the no." Amidst the textual/visual palimpsests and constellatory practices at work here, Occultations begins to suggest new vistas beyond, for both poetics and politics. –David Buuck
