In a series of linked lyric essays, Detailing Trauma explores in vivid, sometimes graphic detail the many types of wounds from which the human body and spirit may suffer—and heal. Mapping the diseases and injuries that can afflict the body, the author asks how we can continue to live and love in the face of the great potential for suffering and loss. She names each section of the book for body parts or processes, then juxtaposes the functions and failures of human anatomy with experiences in her own life and those of people she knows and loves, meticulously stitching together life’s fractures and ruptures with skillful narrative. Each essay offers glimpses of hope and reasons for living with the likelihood of chaos and pain, reasons for choosing to love despite the risks. Zwartjes’s beautifully crafted poetic prose humanizes the technical descriptions of medical conditions and illuminates the scientific understanding of emotional states. Far more than a popularization of science, Detailing Trauma explores the wondrous anatomy and physiology of the human body, a geography of our human frailties—and also our wealth, as humans, of love and hope and the capacity for meditative thought.

Rings Of Lispector Agua Viva

Roni Horn's work ranges from unapologetically pretty color close-ups of striking young faces (This is Me, This is You) and darkly patterned studies of the surface of the River Thames (Dictionary of Water) to her playful abstractions and wordplay-filled installations inspired by the French feminist theorist and writer, Hal ne Cixous. Rings of Lispectordraws in turn from the work of one of Cixous's own favorite authors, the Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector. Horn has covered a floor with interconnecting rubber tiles and passages from Lispector's Agua Viva,arranged in rippled circles. The piece reflects on architectural space and poetic force, encouraging viewers to experience the rubber physically underfoot and to view the words from above. This disorienting act of location, characteristic of Horn's exploration of the possibilities of language as a sculptural form, addresses inner emotions with the idea of landscape. All this is documented in two slipcased volumes, with an essay by Hal ne Cixous.

"What do you know about water? Only that it's everywhere differently." Roni Horn In 2000 Roni Horn published Another Water, an examination of the water of the River Thames through extensively footnoted photographs. This new edition of Another Water includes a new edit of the photographic aspect of the work. Water is a central theme for Horn: as a component of weather, a defining feature of her beloved Iceland, and as a beautiful, changeable element on which life depends. Another Water is an ode to the substance of water but also to its impact on identity and imagination: in Horn's words, "You can't talk about water without talking about oneself."
