SJ Fowler has Enemies. And the Enemies of his Enemies are his friends. This groundbreaking, multi-disciplinary collection is the result of collaborations with over thirty artists, photographers and writers - each imbued with the energy, innovation and generosity of spirit that has become Fowler's calling card as a poet. Meta-diary entries mingle with a partially redacted email exchange; texts slip and fragment, finding new contexts alongside prints, paintings, diagrams and YouTube clips. Animalistic Rorschach blots and behind-the-scenes photographs at the British Museum inspire a poetic that is dynamic but unstable: Fowler's texts walk the high-wire between reason and madness, the individual and the collective, human and animal. At turns witty, antagonistic and self-questioning, Enemies offers a vigorous defence of poetry as a vital and expansive artform capable of renovating 'the living space of communication'.
Includes collaborations with: Emily Critchley, Alexander Kell, Ben Morris, David Kelly, Sarah Kelly, Patrick Coyle, Sian Williams, Anatol Knotek, David Berridge, David Kelly, Lone Eriksen, Frederic Forte, Eirikur Orn Norodahl, Claire Potter, Tim Atkins, Marcus Slease, Ryan Van Winkle, Tom Jenks, Chris McCabe, Monica Rinck, Deborah Pearson, Matteo Patocchi, Sam Riviere & Samantha Johnson.
