“Of Rare Compatibility”: Jen Bervin’s Silk Poems and Making Kin in the Sericene
David Perry
Abstract: Scripting what may be read as a “string figure” companion to Donna Haraway’s Chthulucene, Jen Bervin’s 2017 Silk Poems project becomes entangled with the damage of the Anthropocene—and with projects of recuperation in the face of that damage—via a proposed Sericene: an ecopoetic weaving of human-worm-moth symbiosis in silk, a human voicing articulated through the nonhuman person...
