About the Book

The garden is revealed as both lyrical and mathematical in this explosive work. Anne Parian takes us down paths that always curve out of sight.

Knowing nothing about flora the large and small vegetation is represented by color or contour

Leave the arrangements of a few shared places to their number

One unhappy hour the garden breaks away from the image of such irrefutable diligence naming new patterns at its discretion

Anne Parian was born in 1964 and lives in Paris. She is the author of seven books of poetry and hybrid works; she is also a photographer and video artist.

About the Book
