Sean Cho A, About the Soul – The Understory of the Understory

The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish: The Understory of the Understory
5th & 6th December 2020
Online at

The Understory of the Understory is the fourth instalment in an ongoing series of festivals on consciousness and intelligence across species, part of the Serpentine’s General Ecology project. With The Understory of the Understory, we go to that place which is simultaneously ground, land, soil and Earth, that is to say, the place where diverse species come together, collaborate, communicate and constitute one another but also where complex systems of redistribution of toxicity, logics of extraction and geopolitics meet.

Sean Cho A. is the author of American Home (Autumn House, 2021) which was the winner of the Autumn House Publishing chapbook contest. His work can be future-found in Pleiades, The Massachusetts Review, and Ninth Letter, among others. He is currently an MFA candidate at the University of California Irvine.

This reading of About the Soul is presented in collaboration with The Willowherb Review.
