Anaïs Abreu D’argence

May 15, 1940 Virginia Woolf writes in her diary:
This idea struck me: the army is the body : I am the brain. Thinking is my fighting.”
Anaïs Abreu uses this quote and takes it to it’s limits. She adds a quote from The waves providing the piece a voice beyond death. Virgina Woolf is still alive.

A book can also exist as an autonomous and self-sufficient form, including perhaps a text that emphasizes that form, a text that is an organic part of that form: here begins the new art of making books. (Ulises Carrion)
