About this item
Yoshimasu Gozo is one of the most prominent figures in contemporary Japanese literature and art. His creative endeavors have spanned over half a century since the publication of his first book of poetry, Shuppatsu (Departure). Much of his work is so unorthodox it defies the print medium. Since the late sixties, Gozo has collaborated with visual artists and free jazz musicians. In the late eighties, he began creating art objects that featured words engraved on copper plates and later produced photographs and video works. In Alice Iris Red Horse, the poet Forrest Gander has gathered translations of Gozo’s major works that represent his entire career. Also included here are illuminating interviews and reproductions of Gozo’s artworks and performances.
