Book launches

Book launch of Servant Drone, w/ reading by Paul Hawkins and Sarer Scotthorne at Bloom & Curll Books, Bristol, UK, 25/03/2016.  Footage by Jason Beech.

‘Reading Servant Drone is like rifling through Tristan Tzara’s confidential waste, receiving a spam email from Kurt Schwitters or eavesdropping on an inaudible conversation at the fringes of a deconstructivist house party. Fragmentary and beautifully bewildering, this is a work of dense collage, where found and made text stack up to build an edifice that threatens to topple time and again but is saved by a change in wind direction. Servant Drone is in perpetual motion, a shaken snow globe of references and registers, refusing the easy eternal verities, finding instead a more complex truth in the temporary furniture of the sublunar sphere. Deeply nuanced and obliquely radical, this is a book to keep in your pocket as a charm against the liquid spectres of a late capitalist Monday morning.’

Servant Drone book launch at Gato Vadio Bookshop, Porto, 19-03-2016, by Paul Hawkins and Bruno Neiva. Introduction by Rui Torres. Footage by Tiago Silva.

“What is the worst poetry myth? That it is a singular form, not naturally lending itself to collaboration? Or that what is actually contemporary, relevant, dynamic, is innately experimental or strange? Servant Drone is one of the finest examples of a poetic work which destroys both superstitions in one fell sweep. It is energetic, decisive, colloquial and necessary. It is a work of synthesis between two exceptional vanguard poets that balances satire, critique and humour with an intense methodological engagement."
