Out this month on Vier Books.
At the heart of a new Ukraine, as poetically as politically, the work of Volodymyr Bilyk, and it’s worldwide repute, as is tied to the new possibilities of technology in the 21st century as it is the quality and innovation that defines it. Bilyk is the new face of a nation whose poetic history is as often entrenched as its political, and his groundbreaking visual, minimalist, conceptual, sound and artpoetry has been published across the globe, due in no small part to his willingness to embed himself within internet culture and its potentialities. Moreover, his immediacy as a poet, as evident in his poetics as in his colloquially eloquent, unpretentious mode and manner, reveals itself as the expression of an individual willing to commit utterly to the ideal of democratic freedom in his homeland. This interview is conducted during the unyielding protests, and the resultant government violence and oppression, wracking the Ukraine in late 2013 / early 2014, of which Volodymyr Bilyk, the 98th respondent of the Maintenant series, is a central and formidable part.

If it were possible, an art of pure ideas must nonetheless rely on language: a matter subject to slippage, manipulation and play, to colour and emotion, to expectations and their subversion, diversion or delay. Ideas Aside is a language game of wooden and metal sans-serif type composed in the press and printed in permanent red ink.

Frances Presley will perform at the next Other Room on Wednesday, 5th February, 7 PM start, free entry. The clip above is of Frances reading at Xing the Line in July 2012. For more information about her work, try her author page at Shearsman, or this interview with Matilde Christensen. The other readers are Gavin Selerie and Chris Stephenson, with a preview of Chris to follow soon.
Frances Presley was born in Derbyshire, grew up in Lincolnshire and Somerset, and lives in London. She studied literature at the universities of East Anglia and Sussex, writing dissertations on Pound, Apollinaire, and Bonnefoy. She worked as a library and information specialist, in community development and anti-racism, and at the Poetry Library. Publications of poems and prose include The Sex of Art (North and South, 1988), Hula Hoop (Other Press, 1993), and Linocut (Oasis, 1997). She collaborated with Irma Irsara on a project about the fashion trade, Automatic Cross Stitch (Other Press, 2000); and with Elizabeth James in an email text and performance, Neither the One nor the Other (Form Books, 1999). Somerset Letters (Oasis, 2002), with drawings by Ian Robinson, explored community and landscape. The title sequence of Paravane: new and selected poems, 1996-2003 (Salt, 2004) was a response to 9/11/2001, and the IRA bombsites in London. Myne: new and selected poems and prose, 1976-2005, (Shearsman, 2006) takes its title from the old name for Minehead in Somerset. Lines of Sight (Shearsman, 2009) features Neolithic stone sites on Exmoor, and is part of a collaboration with Tilla Brading, Stone settings (Odyssey, 2010). Her latest book is An Alphabet for Alina (Five Seasons, 2012), a collaboration with artist Peterjon Skelt. Presley has written various essays and reviews, especially on innovative British women poets. She has co-translated the work of two Norwegian poets, Hanne Bramness and Lars Amund Vaage. Her work is included in the anthologies Infinite Difference (Shearsman, 2010), and Ground Aslant: radical landscape poetry (Shearsman, 2011). She has also contributed to a collection of poetic autobiographies, Cusp (Shearsman, 2012).

“This is a compilation of some of the collaborations which Fowler has undertaken with over 150 artists, writers, sculptors and musicians in a project funded by the Arts Council and the Jerwood Foundation. The scale of the work has been enormous and is a testament to Fowler’s commitment as a kind of impresario of the avant-garde (or vanguard, as he prefers to call it): alongside this anthology, numerous discreet publications have emerged with small presses.”
