Poetry. Translated from the French by Eleni Sikelianos. Sabine Macher's long poem performs an archeology of sensation with particular attention to the body and modes of perception between the five senses. Macher negotiates the particulars of a "here and now" with other times, places, and events. The result is a warm, wry record of life lived with attention.
Sabine Macher, a native of Germany, has made a career in dance and theater throughout France. She has published eleven books of poetry, and worked extensively in soundscapes and sound installation. Her piece on Raymond Roussel's novel La Doublure was featured this spring at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
