EVEN STILL – Sylee Gore

A study of silence and light in articulate, minimal visual poetry, and an extraordinary debut from Berlin-based poet, artist, and translator Sylee Gore. Even Still is a concentrated exploration of the integrity of the image-word, beyond fragmentation, comprising three formally distinct but interdependent parts – staged sculptural objects, photo-poems, and asemic watercolours – brought together in a publication of remarkable poise and skill.

Poem Brut celebrates artistic creative writing and its relationship with neurobiology – embracing text and colour, space and time, handwriting, composition, abstraction, illustration, sound, mess and motion – affirming the possibilities of the page, the pen, the process, the performance and the voice in a computer age. It is a project that celebrates genuine authentic originality in poetry, without overt recourse to biographical context and identity, and resists a literature of control, neatness, poise and direct, didactic meaning.

Poem Brut has offered an alternative understanding of 21st century literature since 2017 and has formed a quiet movement in British, and global, poetry.
Series edited by SJ Fowler.
