The second issue in the “Poetic Series” takes its title Peacocks with Hiccups
from the poetry of Berlin-based artist Karl Holmqvist
, whose work is featured alongside American poet Catherine Wagner and emerging Spanish writer Luna Miguel. Artwork is provided by Koo Jeong-A
, whose simple line drawings were chosen from a series titled “Dr. Vogt.” Koo Jeong-A
walks personal and cultural grounds to record relationships and comical encounters within landscapes and interiors.
The “Poetic Series” brings together works of poetry and literature in combination with visual art, introducing young as well as established writers concerned with challenging the boundaries of traditional forms of narrative. Initiated by Keren Cytter
and coedited with Fiona Bryson, the quarterly publications focus on three experimental writers or poets per issue—image content is supplied by one artist.
