“I don’t see this as a matter of archaeological passion, nor romantic sentiment, but a desire to live within the body like an environment, to move in and out of it–oneself or another–not to break into it.”          Patrick Farmer

‘Azimuth, the Ecology of an Ear’, is a new book by Patrick Farmer in collaboration with twenty three other artists. It revolves around fifteen attempts to locate and rend the human/non-human ear into holes, isolating and being with its forms and natures outside of their conventional relations–inhabiting a distinct violence of separation–in order to see what, if any, degree of wholeness may arise in the distinct noise of the particulars.

It asks, what is the ear; where is the ear; who is the ear; what are we to our ears; are we listeners or listening; does the ear hear? It considers the ear as interlocutor, as equivalence, as syncope, as eros (hear us).

Poetic approaches to Silence

I was lucky enough to have one of my scores (and a realisation by Loren Chasse, Matt Hannafin, Branic Howard, and Juniana Lanning), ‘Camera Silenta. Two eggs in a cup to stand in for reality’, included in an exhibition curated by Clara de Asis, at the poetry centre in Marseille recently.

The exhibition also featured work by Jürg Frey, Catherine Lamb, Ryoko Akama, Michael Pisaro, and Eva-maria Houben.
