I can not repeat what I hear

Natalie Czech

Photography, Poetry

Natalie Czech’s works meander between concrete poetry and conceptual photography. In der newest publication she directs her main focus to the writing process and its inherent possibilities. For the series “Voyelles”— which refers to Rimbaud’s eponymous poem — Czech invited ten authors to describe a fictitious synesthesia-invoking photography in her name. In the publication’s other series, “Poems by Repetition”, the stylistic device of repetition simultaneously creates echo, music, rhythm, stuttering, and beat. Natalie Czech uses newspaper articles, record covers, books, different iPad models and Kindle readers as supporting media for the poems and thus creates a dialogue between printed text and illustration, the literary form of a poem and the artistic practice of photography. The artist transforms literary into visual strategies and formally writes poems in the medium of photography.
