Anji Cheung | Fearless Body
Label: Oakseer – OS030
Format: Cassette, Album, Limited Edition, Stereo
Released| 21 Dec 2021
Fearless Body was sparked from a re-read of Genet’s ‘The Thief’s Journal’ and his literary alchemy that transforms degradation into poetry and man into saint. All track titles are phrases lifted from the book. I particularly like 'fearless body'- it resonates with my experience of the rhythms and cycles of the female body through time, as a practitioner of yoga gently pushing the body beyond the realm of it’s natural scope and through the breath engaging the bodymind.
"this painful moment must concur with the beauty of my life, I refuse to let this moment and all others be waste matter; using their suffering I project myself to the mind's heaven." - Jean Genet, The Thief's Journal.
