Prose poems and verses in Spanish and in English translation reveal the author's everyday struggles to survive, her roots in Santurce, Puerto Rico, and her experiences as a native of the Caribbean who lives apart from her island home.
Tiré du site de l'éditeur: "To accompany this year's issue of Matador, La Fábrica presents a new, unique, large-format artist book, which on this occasion has been specially created by the multimedia artist Philippe Parreno, regarded as "the master of installation". Bestiario brings together 24 images comprising a collection of Parreno's fantastic creatures which nourish his otherworldly creative universe. A key artist of his generation, Parreno rose to prominence in the 1990's and is regarded as one of the most innovative and intriguing international artists. Talent, imagination, magic, technology, poetry and light are some his trademarks. He creates installations, films, music, drawings, sculptures, text pieces, performances and other works that span different media, while asking viewers to join him in a journey to a personal, imaginative and subtle universe, where the boundaries between tangible and imagined, real and apparent, objective and subjective, present and memory, become vague and blurred."
