Ben Fama's Deathwish: a book release
Ben Fama's Deathwish drops us back into the beauty and the fantasies teased out in his first book Fantasy, re-braiding them through BDSM scenarios, metaphysical inquiries, and the maximalism of the contemporary.
Ben Fama’s “I” is a desolate seer; his “you” is us all; reading Deathwish is a role play. These sexy, uncluttered poems are love notes and accusations saturated with a personal/political heartsickness I find weirdly consoling. Fama’s vivid, semi-abstract renderings of moments within our terrible moments are gifts.
— Johanna Fateman
Liturgy is a Brooklyn-based, self-styled “Transcendental Black Metal” band whose yearning, energetic music exists in an uncanny space between avant rock, black metal, fine art and shamanic ritual.
