Taking encyclopedic form, Queuejumping eloquently unspools manifestations of capitalist, colonialist, agrologist, and scientist impulses–all within the context of the letter Q. From queens, queers, quadrupeds, and the Quran to quick, quiddity, and quotidian, artist and scholar Marina Roy masterfully presents research-based art writing, poetry, lists (Q without U: words for Scrabble), found images and piercing essays on humankind’s hunger to supersede the other in order to preference what Roy calls “the vertically-directed world.” Moving effortlessly between the macro and micro—from millions of years of organic decay to the the contemplation of contemporary art—Queuejumping is concerned with the origins of hegemonic forces, what is lost by winning, and what is gained by stepping out of line.

Queuejumping is an appropriate image-action for stealing time—for those who are in a hurry to get there and yet never seeming to be able to get ahead.

Marina Roy, Queuejumping
