THEADORA WALSH


hello! I am a writer and video artist who makes work in the intersection of those fields. I’m into the physicality of language, its existence in time, and the tension between speech and its documentation. My work amplifies the subjectivity of language by creating poetic images that hinge on the edge of recognition and alienation--legibility and incomprehension. Time, memory, and the social nature of language play central roles.

Mark


“An astonishing and accomplished manuscript that combines memoir and fiction -- both written in a poetic/associative mode -- as well as a number of interspersed registers: humor, research, dialogue, history, meditation. The subject is a complex excavation based on a grandmother's diary, but the themes extend far into global affairs, especially in Poland, and the aftermath of WW2 -- its silences, diasporas, and the experience of many different people who had their lives invaded, overturned, ended. The manuscript is both entertaining and very poignant, and a fluid and unique work. ”
