Osmanthus presents Clippings from Toad Palace, a project that celebrates voice and handwriting, and attempts to use sound, space, color, and motion to celebrate poetry’s performative aspects.
Osmanthus is proud to present poems and photographs by Angela Weiser.
In the series, Weiser presents the poems as handwritten notes in an attempt to engrave the poems, and conserve the memories. To recontextualize the body in both a here, a there, and a nowhere, Weiser’s poems seek to preserve this disquiet and embrace any misunderstandings.
Each of these poems is partially obscured by a photograph.
Slide the photograph aside to reveal the full poem.
An audio file of Weiser reading is
