The themes and arguments of this book are introduced in this chapter through a consideration of a contemporary artist and video-maker’s engagement with the archive through a practice of “full-body quotation.” The concept of fabulation—drawn from the process philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Henri Bergson—is introduced, and related to black feminist theories of “critical fabulation.” Feminist and queer theories of embodied memory are introduced in relation to the critique of post-humanism.

Keywords:   Tsang, Wu, The Flawless Mother Sabrina, The Queen (film), queer temporality, black queer aesthetics
