Alive: A Portfolio of Poetry and Written Drawings by Christine Herzer


Christine Herzer is a poet and visual artist. Writing is at the heart of her artistic practice: writing as a physical act [handmade, irregular] and a way of producing meaning; how the gesture of writing, its materiality [color, for example] and the choice of surface (a window; paper; the floor) make visible spaces of otherness and engage viewers on a personal and somatic level; writing as a catalyst. She holds an MFA in Poetry from the Bennington Writing Seminars. Her third collection of poems, Orange, was published by Ugly Duckling Presse (Brooklyn, NY, USA) in 2018. Herzer lives and works in Paris.
