Abstract [en]

With the alignment of opinion and thought around the fear of climate change, one wonders whether literature is not being given a role in documenting or even projecting a world caught up in physical constraints. This impoverishment of imaginary reinforces the feeling of green-washing with a risk of reification; there is thus a need to explore the outlines of a decolonial ecology. In Haiti, marked by memories of a successful revolution with the installation of the world’s first black republic, the socio-historical violence caused by colonialism and dictatorship has accentuated the succession of natural disasters like the Earthquake in 2010. This is why a certain generation of French-speaking writers such as Frankétienne have proposed the canons of a spiralist aesthetic that finds in language a vitalist poetics with the promotion of a chaophony that can bypass the repetition of catastrophes and thwart the traps of discourse. This article presents Frankétienne’s chaophony and connects this poetic ambition to this spiralist aesthetic that renews the framework of decoloniality.

Conference
The presentation was made during an online conference given by Centre Universitaire de Mayotte et Laboratoire LISAA, Université Gustave Eiffel and Mélanges Caraïbes (15-16 December 2022) on "Decolonial ecology in the margins of the world". The presentation shows how the Haitian artist and writer Frankétienne proposed an aesthetic of chaos that allows us to think about the world in its successive collapses.
