…cerchi? Cerchi (…you search? Circles) in Reliquiae

‘…cerchi? Cerchi (… you search? Circles)’ is published in Reliquiae Vol. 9 No. 2.

It is an initial attempt at working with and from the monumental anthology I mistici dell’Occidente (Western Mystics), edited by Elémire Zolla in the 1960s, with interferences by Cristina Campo, Dante, Jean Genet, Djuna Barnes, Vivian Darroch-Lozowski among others.

It was prompted by reading a page in Cristina Campo:

And from there, spinning thoughts and words from other books as I always do.

A Bell for Cristina in Glossator 11, Cristina Campo: Translation / Commentary

‘A Bell for Cristina’ was an early attempt, three years ago, at writing around the work of Cristina Campo (a fundamental presence in my reading and writing, thinking and being) avoiding the monographic study – thinking of transcelation as hearing in reading – writing a cadence rather than a topic, holding the confusion of sources in reading across languages.

It is published in Glossator 11, Cristina Campo: Translation / Commentary, edited by Nicola Masciandaro and Andrea di Serego Alighieri.

Volumes in Firmament

My essay ‘Volumes’ is published in Firmament Vol. 1, No. 3, edited by Jessica Sequeira for Sublunary Editions.

A version of this text will be included in Nothing As We Need It, forthcoming on Punctum Books / Risking Education in 2022 – this is the first of two books (and future projects) around the idea and the form of chimeric writing.
