Still from Liberty Sadler’s performance of reading her poem ‘MY BODY IS NOT A LANDSCAPE‘ to the ocean on the island of Susak, Croatia, as part of Susak Expo 2016:

“MY CUNT IS NOT TO BE COLONIZED.

MY BODY IS NOT A LANDSCAPE TO BE CULTIVATED.

MY FIELD OF POPPIES IS NOT FOR YOUR OPIUM.

MY FRUIT IS NOT FOR YOUR CONSUMPTION.

MY WATER IS NOT FOR YOU TO BATHE IN.
THEY DO NOT LIE IN WAIT FOR YOU.
IF I INVITE YOU TO WANDER MY HILLS AND VALLEYS, YOU ARE MY COMPANION.

YOU WALK WITH ME, NOT OVER ME.

WE WILL LIE IN MY WILD FLOWERS TOGETHER.

WE WILL DRINK FROM MY WATERFALL TOGETHER.

YOU ARE WELCOME AS MY GUEST, BUT YOU WILL NEVER BE MY CONQUEROR.”

– Liberty Antonia Sadler, 2016

This text piece also featured in Sadler’s solo exhibition ‘CLAIMING SPACE’

16-17th May at Punctum Gallery.
