Product Description

Vers Aloe heralds the poetic debut of artist Deming Huang, emerging from the depths of his artistic exploration. Chronicling personal queer biography, this collection spans continents, capturing his expedition as a ‘ghostly hunter for queer legacies.’ It traverses his odyssey from birth on China’s southernmost island, through his teen years in Australia, to his present abode in the UK. In a haunting and nuanced ensemble of self-dialogue and poetic introspection, Huang deftly navigates the intricacies of the Asian queer diasporas and the discourse of biopolitics.

The book offers a heartfelt invitation to readers, beckoning them from a mythical mise-en-scène into a tactile literary mise-en-page. This volume orchestrates a dynamic interplay of visual and textual elements, and the dust jacket itself unfurls into a poster displayed with one of his paintings, luring readers to immerse themselves in the hunting season of Huang’s voyage as he cruises and climbs the enigmatic terrain of queer poetics within the black forest of his own existence.
