ABOUT TREES: KATIE HOLTEN. Broken Dimanche Press, Berlin, 2015. Parapoetics: A Literature Beyond the Human, 1. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. with 88 ills. 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783943196306 In English.
Publisher's description: New York-based Irish artist Katie Holten's artist book About Trees is the first in BDP's Parapoetic series exploring the Anthropocene -- our current geologic epoch in which human activities significantly impact earth's ecosystems. The project poetically considers our consciousness of nature, language and memory through the image and history of the tree in a selection of writings by a diverse international group of artists, poets, essayists and scientists including Jorge Luis Borges, Tacita Dean, James Gleick, Amy Harmon, Natalie Jeremijenko, Elizabeth Kolbert, Robert Macfarlane and Rachel Sussman, among many others. To introduce each chapter, the artist created an alphabet and typeface from her tree drawings, reminding us of the significance of trees as barometer of man's impact upon the planet. This project is inspired by Holten's recent body of work on trees shown internationally. Holten represented Ireland at the 50th Venice Biennale and is the recipient of numerous awards including a Fulbright Scholarship (2004).
