By Anne Tardos. Interview by Lyn Hejinian.
At every level of Anne Tardos's paintings, films, poetry, and cross-genre work, the familiar is engaged while acknowledging the violently contested landscape of what we think we know. Connection is the dominant mode of composition. A brand new vernacular emerges when Tardos's unique voice announces itself in her rapid language switches, gleeful humor, and rare willingness to blend the personal and political. With new and previously published work as well as an introductory interview with the author and prominent poet Lyn Hejinian, The Dik-dik's Solitude is the first comprehensive collection of work by this significant, avant-garde contemporary artist.
