“I drew a plan of the filming instrument. The writing drew within the field of the camera and the filming commenced. The hunting, filming and capture of wild form. I drew a plan of the writing instrument as a poetics as a film for showing in live performance as a writing of day for night.

Hand-bound in an edition of 250, TrenchArt: Logistics introduces the eighth annual TrenchArt series, with aesthetics written by participating series writers and the series visual artist, Alice Könitz. Of the aesthetic essays, Vanessa Place notes in her introduction that “partial objects are proudly on parade: mouths, cunts, cuts of tongue, and the skin-surface of films/film-surface of skins.” Each of the books in the Logistics series uses the cut, and cutting, as an organizing principal. Additional series titles include: Our Lady of the Flowers, Echoic by Chris Tysh; Film Poems by Redell Olsen; Cunt Norton by Dodie Bellamy; and Things To Do With Your Mouth by Divya Victor.
