Klara du Plessis: I love poetry readings, but am often bored by them, whether attending or participating. Both in my creative and curatorial practice and in my scholarly research, I’ve been driven to think critically about literary curation and to knead the discipline into a more intentional site for the presentation and sharing of poetic work in performance.
My paintings are kind of made of fragments, and I think of my life as fragments too, as very specific, different experiences…
I still wake weeping after dreams
of my grandmothers
wonder if they would like my small dog
what they would say to the cat.
