A reader to artist Beatrice Gibson’s films that explores representations of parenthood, friendship, and disobedience.
Deux Soeurs brings together a chorus of voices–from Audre Lorde and Adrienne Rich to Basma Alsharif and Pauline Oliveros–that explore representations of parenthood, friendship, and disobedience. The book acts as a reader to artist Beatrice Gibson’s films, I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead (2018) and Two Sisters Who Are Not Sisters (2019), and includes material that had informed Gibson’s working process, together with the artist’s texts and notes used in both films. Turning to the figure of the poet as a guide in times of chaos, Deux Soeurs presents a framework for an ethics of artistic and social collaboration. With contributions by Erika Balsom, Mason Leaver-Yap, Irene Revell, Basma Alsharif, Beatrice Gibson, CAConrad, Eileen Myles, Adam Christensen; texts by Alice Notley, Eileen Myles, Robert Sanchez, Robert Glück, Ursula K. Le Guin, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Pauline Oliveros, and an interview by Adrienne Rich with Audre Lorde
