Ugly Duckling Presse



From Ugly Duckling Presse out of Brooklyn, NY.  "Chronology" by Zahra Patterson. Taking as its starting point an ultimately failed attempt to translate a Sesotho short story into English, Chronology explores the spaces language occupies in relationships, colonial history, and the postcolonial present. It is a collage of images and documents, folding on words-that-follow-no-chronology, unveiling layers of meaning of queering love, friendship, death, and power. Traveling from Cape Town to the Schomburg Center in New York,  Patterson’s Chronology reveals and revels in fragments of the past-personal and the present-political.
