Jala Wahid - Akh Milk Bile Threat


9 September to 14 October 2017

The intestines, cut out with adamant and thrown from warm belly to the tomb-cold steel tray were left out for a long time, barely shaded. The tray became warmer than the beast’s blood, black foam surrounded the pellucid flesh and in it grew a soupy vapour. At first it touched on the putrid matter, swathed in decrepit gown, from there it departed silently and split open above a congealed pool of oil, akh, the poisonous sound of a bezoar dropping into fuscous liquor.
