Scissors are sweet and heal wounds

Scissors are sweet and heal wounds, 2017

Digital print, soft cover, 10,8 × 17,5 cm, 32 pages, self-published in three editions

A publication about written language in artistic contexts. Comprising case studies from the fields of poetry and visual art, the essay highlights spaces in which verbal and visual perception overlap and become inseparable, blurring the borders between reading and seeing, the intellectual and the sensuous. The text revolves around the context-dependent meanings of words, letters and signs while at the same time it alludes to their potential autonomy.
