Of Water and Other Soft Constructions by Heidi Reszies
The connection between poetry and its Greek root, poieîn--to make--is vital in my work. Reszies is a consummate maker. Experiencing the materiality of text and textile, her creative practice seeks to enact and expand liminal spaces with attention to marginality, dailyness, and domestic arrangements. She has discovered that it is natural for her to make poems in a series: a continuous present, beginning again and again. Of Water & Other Soft Constructions is composed of three poetic sequences: fragments stitched together with sutras/sutures in a patchwork/construction of shadow and light.
