and now here i am trying to understand what art is with a child lying in my arms
the abyss of the other is the story of an artist's residency in amsterdam. it is a poem about being a mother alone with a baby, being an artist and an exile. the abyss of the other is evidence of the transformative power of creativity and creation through words and images.
she cries she leaks and with her everything infiltrates my body
she is infiltration itself
she gets under the door underneath everything through the possible holes over her mother treading softly the withered breast in a rubble of lego and rice-cracker fossils [extract from the abyss of the other by cecilia cavalieri.]
