I can not repeat what I hear

Natalie Czech’s works meander between concrete poetry and conceptual photography. In der newest publication she directs her main focus to the writing process and its inherent possibilities. For the series “Voyelles”— which refers to Rimbaud’s eponymous poem — Czech invited ten authors to describe a fictitious synesthesia-invoking photography in her name. In the publication’s other series, “Poems by Repetition”, the stylistic device of repetition simultaneously creates echo, music, rhythm, stuttering, and beat. Natalie Czech uses newspaper articles, record covers, books, different iPad models and Kindle readers as supporting media for the poems and thus creates a dialogue between printed text and illustration, the literary form of a poem and the artistic practice of photography. The artist transforms literary into visual strategies and formally writes poems in the medium of photography.

Body Searches. Jon Ståle Ritland. Broken Dimanche Press

Several processes of communication are continuously happening in the cells and organs of the body. Human language can be seen as a further development of these. Genetic material or DNA is a prerequisite for this internal communication. The four bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T) constitute what you might call the codes or the letters in the language of the genes. The sequence and composition of the letters are decisive for the synthesis of proteins and signal substances. The poems in Body Searches are inspired by the grammar of the genes and the structure of the DNA-molecule and they endeavor to try and unravel, in a new way, the old question: what is a human?
