Dollface: poem-songs

hans-bellmer

This is a project about love butted up right against a hate. In these poems, I hope to not only explore two of the most intriguing artists of the 20th centruy, Unica Zurn and Hans Bellmer, but to delve into their difficult relationship. Filled with admiration, frustration, and even hate, pain mixed with a deep love I wanted very much to imagine just how they would be together, what their days would be like, their thoughts.

Written as “poem-songs,” they lilt between Unica, Hans, and myself interjecting as another woman both epically drawn and devotedly repulsed by Bellmer.
