Poems by Sarah Lantz, Chine Collé etchings by Sarah Horowitz
Collective memories, their loss and disintegration but also their rediscovery are the focus of this well-balanced collection of poems and prints. Lantz who died suddenly in 2007 after the publication of her first book explores the passing of time, absence and loss in her poems. Horowitz captures the ephemeral beauty of plants and flowers, not just their fragility but also their strength and resilience.
