LAURIE ANDERSON Night Life (Steidl, Edition 7L 2007) Thursday, April 19, 7PM
From performing artist, musician and writer Laurie Anderson comes a haunting, beautiful, mysterious book of dreams. Traveling alone in 2005, she writes, ”my dreams gradually became extremely vivid and relentless: headless singing squirrels, cavernous spaces, disasters, a series of unstoppable stories. I began to draw my dreams out of self-defense”. The result is this gorgeous volume of drawing and writing by a special artist acquainted with the night.
