Words by Yahia Lababidi

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

I’m having a hard time keeping up with the videos Swoon has been making for Lababidi’s poems. This one incorporates Dutch sign language by Marjan De Cuyper and painting by Arlekeno Anselmo for a truly multimedia and multinational exploration of, and exploring through, language.

    We ought to thank you for joining our forces.

    My other videopoems, along with those for Yahia, (I started working with Flemish poet Marleen de Crée, also) can be found at vimeo-album KONTEMPLI / KUNMETI (http://vimeo.com/album/1497838)

    Anyway, thanks!
