George Nama

2003 / 2006

 “Poetry is between language and presence. It rushes forward towards presence, but it is only great if it remembers that it always will be in lack because it remains language. George Nama’s art is emblematic of the essential contradiction, of the ambiguity, of the pain, inherent in poetry.”

 

Yves Bonnefoy

 

Nama and Bonnefoy have collaborated on artist’s books for over forty years.
