Song of the Books, 1-2-3/5, mixed media: drypoint + collage + calligraphy, 50×50 cm, 2017. The text comes from the Irish poem by Tomás Rua Ó Súilleabháin (1785-1848) – each print has the subsequent stanza of the lament after the books lost in the sea, known as Amhrán Na Leabhar. The text was set to music and has been performed by many artists; to me the most haunting is the version by Emer Kenny, and it is her piece that most directly inspired the vision. Still, there are two prints left to be finished…

mózg

The selection of illustrations I made for the bilingual (Polish-Serbian) poetry volume Mózg · Mozak [Brain] by Olga Lalić-Krowicka. The volume is a collection of haiku and short poems which tell about a struggle with memories and consciousness within the confines of a mind deeply shaken by the experience of war. The brain becomes the subject, the tool, and the context of recovery, experiencing and witnessing the way out of the hardest of fights, which keeps going on long after the guns turn silent. Completed in 2011, it was eventually released in spring 2012 in Krosno.
