A groundbreaking anthology of artists' writing by Ozgur Demirci, Alev Ersan, Gamze Hakverdi, Gordon Hall, Johanna Hedva, Adelita Husni-Bey, Amal Kenawy, Lata Mani and Nicholas Grandi, Jang Minseung, and Gregory Whitehead.
ALSO YOUR WOUND, ROSA brings together writings on the concept of vulnerability by Ozgur Demirci, Alev Ersan, Gamze Hakverdi, Gordon Hall, Johanna Hedva, Adelita Husni-Bey, Amal Kenawy, Lata Mani and Nicholas Grandi, Jang Minseung, and Gregory Whitehead. The included artists maintain writing practices alongside their visual art practices. Some of the texts are newly commissioned and some are already existing. The writings range from searches for the voice of vulnerability, to feminist practices that foreground creating community based on care, vulnerability, interdependency, and responsibility to the other, to selected haikus and an undelivered letter written to a deceased artist, to a curator’s own explorations of poetic connotations within her woundscape.
