Lançamento de livro pelo curador e poeta Serubiri Moses

 

 

THE MOON IS READING US A BOOK, primeira coleção de poesia de Serubiri Moses, exprime uma ampla paleta de narrativas e folclore num conjunto de poemas narrativos. O livro é moldado em torno de um conjunto de personagens célebres e desconhecidas. Moses cria poemas de inspiração visual que combinam o fotográfico, o intensamente pessoal e o académico. Nesta estreia, o autor domestica figuras canonizadas, como o cantor e compositor nascido em Zanzibar, Freddie Mercury, e o fotógrafo nigeriano Rotimi Fani Kayode. Simultaneamente ponderada e elástica, a poesia de Moses atrai essas figuras, e o leitor, para uma atmosfera tão expansiva quanto as paisagens interiores que delineia com cada poema. No primeiro lançamento mundial do livro, Serubiri Moses irá ler alguns dos poemas da coleção, introduzindo-a em conversa com Alice dos Reis, co-editora da Pântano Books. O evento será conduzido em inglês.

Book launching by curator and poet Serubiri Moses

 

THE MOON IS READING US A BOOK is Serubiri Moses’ debut collection of poems, in which he displays a wide-ranging palette of storytelling and folklore in a suite of narrative poems.

In this debut, he manages to domesticate larger-than-life figures, including Zanzibari-born singer-songwriter Freddie Mercury and Nigerian-born photographer Rotimi Fani Kayode. In the book’s first world-wide release, Serubiri Moses will introduce THE MOON IS READING US A BOOK in conversation with Pântano Books co-editor Alice dos Reis, and read some of its poems.
