We Bury the Landscape is an exhibition of literary art. Ekphrasis, collected. One hundred flash fictions and prose poems presented to view. From the visual to the textual, transmuting before the gallery-goer's gaze, the shifting contours of curator Kristine Ong Muslim's surreal panorama delineate the unconventional, the unexpected, and the unnatural. Traversing this visionary vista's panoply of "rooms of unfinished lives," the reader unearths and examines and reanimates-revealing the transcendent uncanniness that subsists underfoot.

"Many of the stories [in We Bury the Landscape] seem like they could go on, a tantalizing preview to which Muslim invites the reader and then quickly proceeds, an artist in full control of the pace of her show."-- Peter Tieryas Liu, HTML Giant
"It isn't everyday a book offers two very different ways of reading. The first: intensely personal, sometimes bewildering and yet rigorously demanding in terms of creative participation, and the second: intellectual, research-based and analytical, but also a call to a communal multi-genre artistic experience. These two different methods are on offer in Kristine Ong Muslim's collection of micro fictions We Bury the Landscape, an assemblage of very short ekphrastic pieces."-- Michelle Bailat-Jones, Necessary Fiction
"This book brings not only literature but art to life in a compelling and memorable ensemble..."-- Laura McDonald, Neon Magazine
"...there is a tone that is both haunting and tender that carries the emotional weight of the collection. It's a tone of "perilous compassion..." [We Bury the Landscape] chronicles the process in which the things we drown, discard, and bury are exhumed and continue to haunt us even after we have buried them again."-- Hayes Moore, A cappella Zoo
"Kristine Ong Muslim cultivates brilliance in her micro-fiction collection, We Bury the Landscape. Each of these mystical stories, inspired by a specific painting, have transformed into mesmerizing paintings themselves. Muslim delivers us into her own breathtaking museum with the extraordinary shifting shadows and light of dawn or dusk filtering into every piece-layer upon layer of thickly sculpted colors in language."-- Meg Tuite, author of Domestic Apparition and Bound by Blue
