Her first full collection, The Yes of the No, is out now from Site press. This description gives you a flavour – The Yes of the No is the first collection by writer-artist Emma Cocker, which draws together selected fragments of writing produced in dialogue with, parallel to and
as art practice (from between 2007-2016). Existing in the space between imaginative proposition and a call to action, The Yes of
the No is an assemblage of provocations, proposals and potential ways of operating
- ranging from navigating the city and inhabiting the margins to errant acts of reading; from preparing for the unexpected
to learning how to ‘not know’, from minor acts of singular sedition to collective expressions of an insurgent ‘we’. Beginning with a meditation on the affirmative potential of no alongside the dissident capacity of yes-saying as a species of refusal, The Yes of the No advocates different models of daily practice through which to perform everyday life – the as is – in the subjunctive key of what if or even what might be. The Yes of the No takes the form of single-page prose paragraphs, which might be read in sequence or approached in the singular. Each page- paragraph is conceived as implicitly connected to others, yet with an identity (and name) of its own.

An if p then q collection is on the way.
