A 21st century visual poetry response to a classic of French Surrealism.
Bob Modem’s deconstructions of Martin Wakefield’s reimaginings of Paul Eluard’s illustrations of Man Ray’s drawings from Part 1 ofLes Main Libres.
“Carefully controlled chaos erupts in a collaboration of image and text that suggests no hands have had a part to play in this powerfully emotive visual poetic. I imagine gentle poltergeists and considerate ghosts - imbued with the spirit of surreal energy - become as one to create a symbiotic collection of twenty-first century poems that, I hope like me, you will want to read again and again and again. A remarkable achievement!” - Richard Biddle, author of Consciousness
