De wolk in de Volkskrant

Arjan Peters from De Volkskrant wrote about my book De wolk, see the article below. This book, a cloud of text and white space that can be read in different directions, combines twelve poems of P. C. Boutens in such a way that they semi-automatically write new poems.

In de Volkskrant van 3 februari signaleert Arjan Peters De wolk als fluisterzachte opwekking van de geest van Boutens. Klik op de afbeelding voor een vergroting.

Two new discussions of my work

The new year started well with discussions of my work by two insightful critics who have both been following my work for a substantial time.

Sarah Bodman wrote an article about literature and the artist’s book, discussing several of my books and drawing connections to interesting works by Sally Alatalo, John McDowall and Colin Sackett. Published in Polish in the journal Er(r)go, the editors and Sarah Bodman have given kind permission for an English version (PDF) to be put online here.

Johan Velter wrote a glowing reading of my latest book The Plan. You can find it here on his blog (in Dutch).

Het nieuwe project (!) van Elisabeth Tonnard verenigt alle kwaliteiten en gevoeligheden: haar liefde voor het wit en de ruimte, de ironie van dit bestaan, de liefde voor de nietszeggende foto die dan alles kan betekenen, de herhaling, de subtiele wijzigingen. En tegelijkertijd is dit ook een maatschappijkritiek die het kan zonder grote woorden te moeten gebruiken, geen moralisme gebruikt (Against expression) maar overloopt van betekenis en cultuur.
