Sinthujan Varatharajah and Osías Yanov explore different tracings of the body and the imprints of its collective geographies. Their contributions center around the obstacles and objects that keep us apart, but that occasionally become penetrable, allowing bodies to press together, move through, and flow. How can we understand bodies as reservoirs of historical and sensual memories, bodies as borders in and of themselves? Varatharajah is a researcher building an archive of living memory; Yanov is an artist who excavates the body, queering it into a source of archaic meaning. At stake are not only different modes of reconstructing lost journeys but also ways of shaping the future memories of ourselves.
