Coupé à la mains

Blindfold a poet.

Put her poems and a pair of scissors in her hands.

Destroy, she said.

Coupé à la mains uses a surrealist process of chance,”blind cutting,” to cut and reconfigure imagery and fragments of poems by Virginia Konchan: The Hand and Thumb, Helen Keller Confesses All, Helen Keller in Antibes, Immaculate Concept, Hiroshima, Mon Amour, and Fairy Tale. 2016-2017. Handbound, open edition of 10.
