POETICS AND PLACE: THE ARCHITECTURE OF SIGN, SUBJECTS AND SITE. Kristen Kreider. I.B. Tauris & Co. Ltd, London, 2014. International Library of Cultural Studies, 34. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Palgrave Macmillan, New York. 250 pp. with 56 ills. 23 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781780763378 In English.
Publisher's description: How do artworks 'speak', and how do we 'listen' and respond? These questions underlie the investigation here of Roni Horn's Pair Object III: For Two Rooms, Emily Dickinson's later manuscripts, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha's Passages Paysages, Fiona Templeton's Cells of Release and Jenny Holzer's Lustmord. The tenets of critical performance, art-writing and site-writing inform the critical method used in Poetics and Place. Each chapter is dedicated to one of these five artworks, and is arranged in order to fulfill three main objectives: to understand how the artworks generate meaning through a material poetics in relation to place; to develop a critical methodology for engaging with them; and to investigate their ethical potential and political imperative. All of this, ultimately, facilitates the development of a triadic relation between theoretical concepts of sign, subjects and site at the crossover between poetry, art and spatial practices.
