9780937122020: Dressing Our Wounds in Warm Clothes

Dressing Our Wounds in Warm Clothes is a work of healing and connection to the disenfranchised peoples in society and to the closed doors, abandoned rooms, of our psyches. Henes and Jenkins document Henes' sculpture/ritual for the Manhattan Psychiatric Center at Ward's Island. The text is of Henes' dreams and process; the visual images are photographs from the work. But the images are gathered and pieced together in such a way that they have no linear beginning or end. All together they are a sequence out of the ordinary time and space but which yet record a time and space when and where there can be sanity and relationship.

Review:

It was not until I came across Dressing Our Wounds in Warm Clothes, which captures the texture of the poem-houses of my dreams, that I met another journal-keeper who built houses from visions of minuscule, ordinary beauty. My houses are poems and journal entries for me now, and I thank Donna Henes for that. --N'tozake Shange, The New York Times Book Review

Wins my award for the best performance book to date. Life through her looking glass is close up, never distanced from a spiritual search in Henes discoveries of order. --Washington Review

Some years ago, urban shaman Donna Henes conjured up a three-week ceremony called Dressing Our Wounds in Warm Clothes. Equal parts performance art and healing ritual, it was staged at the Manhattan Psychiatric Center on Wards Island, a scrap of land that also hosts a sewage disposal plant. In its ambition, the event rivaled Mother Teresa's well-publicized toilet cleaning at a leper colony. I bring Henes's noble act of creativity to your attention because you'd be smart to draw inspiration from it. --Rob Brezsny, The Village Voice
