How To Say I Love You In Greenlandic: An Arctic Alphabet has been awarded the Birgit Skiöld Award for Excellence. The award was presented at The London Art Book Fair at the Whitechapel Gallery on 13 September 2013. A copy of the book has been acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
How To Say I Love You In Greenlandic was represented at The London Art Book Fair by KALEID editions. KALEID also exhibited the book earlier this year as one of the 50 ‘best artists’ books’ at KALEID 2013 LONDON at The Art Academy (image below).
How To Say I Love You In Greenlandic will be on display in the exhibition Beyond Words: Artists and Translation at Amelie Gallery in Beijing from 15 November until 20 December.
Tikilluarit will be on show at Poet’s House, New York City from 11 July until 27 September 2013. The book presents a sonnet from my Greenlandic series, originally published in Modern Poetry in Translation as ‘The Hunter Teaches Me To Speak’, recast in a new, experimental setting by Roni Gross and Peter Schell (the team behind The Night Hunter).
Tikilluarit was created for An Inventory Of Al-Mutanabbi Street. This project, ‘both a lament and a commemoration of the singular power of words’, is an international response to the explosion of a car bomb in Al-Mutanabbi Street, the historic centre of bookselling in Baghdad and the heart and soul of the literary and intellectual community, in March 2007.
