Description

Over the summer, nine translators gathered at Art Metropole to experiment with the elastic practices and theories of trancelation (a word that acknowledges language’s hypnotic properties and the trancelator’s own suspended agency in the between-space of translation). Most had never worked in creative translation before—a weird and endless task—but they worked from Spanish, French, Italian, Korean, German, English, incorporating swaths of architecture, visual art, philosophy, condensation, and commentary into their projects. In this book you’ll find the cornucopia of their labour: a mythological romp through a translingual rose garden; a rehearsal for revolt composed out of Finnegans Wake; a creaturely (dis)union of Kafka and Walter Benjamin; homophonic delirium visions of Lautreamont; a series of Anglo-Italian invitations to live other lives; fiery Guatemalan poetry in honour of the disappeared; Korean poetics of lack and yearning; elemental birds of prey hovering above the solitary wasteland; remixes in the zone of friendship.
