To advance slide show click on the page.



Donato Mancini makes visual and procedural poetry, bookworks, and visual art. His main books are: SNOWLINE (2015), Buffet World (2011) Fact ‘N’ Value (2011), Æthel (2007) and Ligatures (2005). Notable exhibitions of Mancini’s visual artworks have included exhibitions through Artspeak, Western Front, Gallery Atsui, Malaspina Printmaker’s Society, and CSA. He has performed with Gabriel Saloman in their noisepoetry/noisecomedy/noisemusic ensemble Ontological Strike in the 2013 LIVE! Biennale of performance art, and as part of Concrete Scores at Open Space. Mancini’s published critical writing includes work on the archive, time and memory in Anamnesia: Unforgetting (2011), and You Must Work Harder to Write Poetry of Excellence (2012). The work presented here is from Loitersack (2014), a labyrinthine commonplace book where critical, theoretical and paraliterary tendencies intersect in the forms of poetry, poetics, theory, theory theatre, laugh particles and questions. Selected by Colin Fulton.

    It’s a short text that is directly comparable to Caroline Bergvall’s “Via.”
    SNOWLINE is here:
