Absence Where As

This new book, from inter-genre, bilingual writer Nathanaël (Nathalie Stephens), investigates the relationship between image and language through a philosophical and poetic meditation on a self-portrait by Surrealist photographer and writer Claude Cahun.
Stephens, Nathalie (Nathanaël)

The Sorrow And The Fast Of It

The Sorrow And The Fast Of It exists in a middle place: an overlay of indistinct geographies and trajectories. Strained between the bodies of Nathalie and Nathanael, between dissolution and abjection, between the borders that limit the body in its built environment--the city and its name(s), the countries, the border crossings--the narrative, splintered and fractured, dislocates its own compulsion.
Stephens, Nathalie (Nathanaël)
