The poems are contemplations around encounters with art, tentatively proposing new saints within the field. Many poems are ekphrastic, as likely to comment on and/or recreate the artworks through text as they are to ask fundamental questions about art, text, or life. Here are poems on Munch and Obstefelder, Gerhard Richter and Andy Warhol, Tom Waits, Gunvor Hofmo, John Donne and Nelly Sachs. Løveid’s poetry is fabulating, her position chosen playfully, philosophically; here places of understanding, misunderstanding, or simply of standing.
Cecilie Løveid’s excellent poems about art, terror and politics becomes the highlight of her authorship.
Mindblowing, energetic prose poems that shakes the border between beauty and ugliness. I hope Cecilie Løveid wins the Brage Prize.
Humorous and innvoative poetry on art and artists. [...] Cecilie Løveid at her best.
