Poetry. Art. Book + CD. Enter vulvic space through Pyrenean caves and sacred stones, feel the wind and smell the shells of the Verrazano Narows. BI-VALVE is a trilingual sonic unfolding of Nicole Peyrafitte's paintings, poems and vocals. Accompanied by jazz virtuoso Michael Bisio, Peyrafitte enters a geo-psychic knowledge that pulses with materiality. "...I am a resistant / multilingual migratory bi-valve / with eyes lens retina." Look and listen as she offers a corporeal map of receptivity: "it is simple / elemental secular & séculaire / I watch the tide the sunset." She mirrors, for us, the matrix that is us. "Je ne perçois pas toujours les formes / mais je suis une coquille chantante / je détecte la lumière le mouvement / & / je vulvapplaudis la lumière." Then, she feeds us (recipe included).
