And those of the city, who were in the streets below, shot at the women with arrows and darts, which pierced them through the sides, so that they received many wounds, because their golden armor was so weak.

"And those of the city, who were in the streets below, shot at the women with arrows and darts, which pierced them through the sides, so that they received many wounds, because their golden armor was so weak."  - Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo, Las sergas de Esplandián

Calafia’s soldiers are shot through their golden armor and fall to the ground. Not yet dead, two lock eyes with each other. Each holds her gaze to keep the other alive.

This piece keeps Calafia’s soldiers alive via their deaths. Once they hit the floor, ostensibly dead, they become objects, lifeless bodies, from the perspective of those standing above them. Yet their fellow soldiers, who have helped keep them alive up to the moment of the beginning of their deaths, see their true state. They do not expend energy attempting to stand again, to perform subjecthood in a way that is legible by those who would destroy them; instead, they refuse death for and through those who are and have always been next to them. Their gazes and nearly illegible movements create space without claiming it. They are under attack, they have been attacked, but they remain.
