About this item
Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. In ANYTHING & EVERYTHING, Michel Delville writes very short stories for people with short attention spans alongside very short essays for people who have no patience for full–length philosophical treatises. ANYTHING & EVERYTHING is a collection of imaginary portraits of modern and contemporary artists ranging from Montaigne to Erik Satie, Gertrude Stein, David Lynch and Captain Beefheart. While some of these "microessays" are grounded in the life and works of the artists, others were generated by a more personal, subjective, associational logic that pays tribute to the complex, whimsical and paradoxical legacy of Belgian Surrealism. More often than not, the works and artists considered here are seen through the lens of the conjunction of food and discourse, from a perspective that stresses the need to attend to the movements of a consciousness which is as visceral as it is cerebral.
