9781848850972: Passionate Being: Language, Singularity and Perseverance

Yve Lomax is a remarkable artist and writer, who has established a practice of writing that is unique within contemporary Fine Art. Her work has helped to establish a new discipline of Art Writing, which provides a particular space for a critical and analytical approach to writing within contemporary art. Passionate Being, as Anne Tallentire observes, ""is both a culmination of and a departure from previous work,"" including her two earlier books for Tauris. 

Written through both the first and second person singular, Passionate Being takes  its author and its reader on a journey that has them thinking of their experience of and belonging to language.

At its beginning, it brings to its author the question ""What can you say?"" The responses that ensue turn our attention toward presupposition and about how ""singularity"" can be said. The book also brings into play the work of other theorists, notably Giorgio Agamben. It asks us to view both language and the world taking-place without presupposition, revealing both the political implications, and those for living, that this vision holds. It is a work to be read twice with pleasure, and then again.
