sadé powell

sadé's finger obscures a black and white image of sadé lying down with her face against her hand. she is looking directly into the camera.

sadé powell is a concrete poet from new york exploring meaning-making through print and paper techniques. inspired by her upbringing, she uses the sonic, kinesthetic, and linguistic elements of her 1940s typewriter to experiment with dissemblance as black feminist poethics. sadé holds a ma in performance studies at nyu tisch. her first-ish chapbook wordtomydead is forthcoming with ugly duckling presse.
