Verbal Action Violent Action

He who does not fear deeds, is not afraid of words.
Sófocles. Oedipus Rex.

Since the longing for violence is not represented in isolation, AVAV gathers headings it comes across more or less haphazardly. It kidnaps them before releasing them re-written. It publishes them again anonymously, altered. In doing so they become not estranged but closer to its source, more faithful to its truth: that longing for violence that beats at the heart of those of us craving for, and wielding, power.

AVAV deals with words with rough typographical thumpings, relishing what is otherwise known as ‘typographical hammerings’. If we say rather glibly that words lie, we can also, following Max Harkheimer, atest to the reality that facts are no different.

Since violence is specular, AVAV expresses God’s perfect symmetry in its anagram


The sum of the individuals that come to form AVAV unravels as an inorganic compound which only exists in and through action.
