How To Be Invisible: ‘Selected Lyrics’ by Kate Bush

Available for the first time in paperback, How To Be Invisible collects the seminal lyrics of Kate Bush, selected by the artist and brought together in a beautiful edition with cover artwork from Jim Kay.

Selected and arranged by the author, How To Be Invisible presents the lyrics of Kate Bush in a beautiful new paperback edition featuring a new cover by illustrator Jim Kay.

‘The greatest singer-songwriter of the past 40 years, whose work is complex, ethereal and filled with so many secrets that one can listen to the albums for decades and still discover new delights every time[…] there’s not a spare word anywhere in Bush’s work. Everything means something.’ – Irish Times

Kate Bush is an English singer, songwriter, musician, dancer and record producer. Rising to prominence with her debut single ‘Wuthering Heights’, she has released ten studio albums, all of which have charted in the UK Top Ten. She has been nominated for thirteen Brit Awards, winning for Best British Female Artist in 1987, and has been nominated for three Grammy Awards. In 2002 she received an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, was appointed a CBE in the 2013 New Years Honours, and was twice-nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. How to Be Invisible, a collection of Bush’s lyrics, was published by Faber & Faber in 2018 and was a Rough Trade and Belfast Telegraph Book of the Year.

ANOHNI presents: She who saw beautiful things

Holland Festival’s associate artist ANOHNI presents a mixed media exhibit: SHE WHO SAW BEAUTIFUL THINGS.

The installation includes a series of portraits honoring ANOHNI’s former collaborator Dr. Julia Yasuda, taken by Julia’s late wife Erika Yasuda in Tokyo in the early 1980s, and exhibited here for the first time.

Erika Yasuda’s portrets: Within the collection of the Huis Willet-Holthuysen in the centre of Amsterdam, ANOHNI layers photos, silkscreened fabrics, sculpture, video, sound and paintings from her own artistic practices within a selection of Erika Yasuda’s extraordinary portraits. The works reflect an insular and delicately composed vision of enlightened femininity and luxuriant androgyny, persevering in memory despite historical and ongoing existential threats.

ANOHNI: ‘I like the concept of ‘animism’ – that everything is alive, in an ongoing a process of transformation -and that all materiality is imbued with a certain presence, even a sense of memory that we might not entirely understand. I work with veils as a way to suggest different layers of presense. Sometimes I imagine a cacophony of moments within a timeline in a certain space, as if they were all able to express their vitality simultaneously.’

About ANOHNI: Born in England, ANOHNI lives and works in America as a musician, visual artist and theater director. In 1995 she founded her performance group The Johnsons, with which she performed with symphony orchestras in opera houses around the world, including Sydney Opera House, the Royal Opera House in London, Teatro Real in Madrid and Carnegie Hall in New York.

ANOHNI has presented exhibitions of her visual work at the Nikolaj Kunsthal, Kunsthalle Bielefeld, The Hammer Museum, The Kitchen and Sikkema Jenkins Gallery in New York. She co-facilitated the art project FUTURE FEMINISM presented at The Hole, New York in 2014 and was part of ANOHNI’s artistic residency in Aarhus, European Capital of Culture in 2017.

The Willet-Holthuysen House: The imposing Willet-Holthuysen House is situated in the center of Amsterdam. The house on the Herengracht contains many period rooms. Its beautiful salons are in the style of Louis XIV, and the garden is symmetrically designed as a French formal garden.

Address: Herengracht 605, 1017 CE Amsterdam.
Open daily from 10 a.m. 5 p.m.

Georg Trakl: Grodek (Gedicht)


Am Abend tönen die herbstlichen Wälder
von tödlichen Waffen, die goldnen Ebenen
und blauen Seen, darüber die Sonne
düstrer hinrollt; umfängt die Nacht
sterbende Krieger, die wilde Klage
ihrer zerbrochenen Münder.
Doch stille sammelt im Weidengrund
rotes Gewölk, darin ein zürnender Gott wohnt
das vergoßne Blut sich, mondne Kühle;
alle Straßen münden in schwarze Verwesung.
Unter goldenem Gezweig der Nacht und Sternen
es schwankt der Schwester Schatten durch den schweigenden Hain,
zu grüßen die Geister der Helden, die blutenden Häupter;
und leise tönen im Rohr die dunkeln Flöten des Herbstes.
O stolzere Trauer! ihr ehernen Altäre
die heiße Flamme des Geistes nährt heute ein gewaltiger Schmerz,
die ungebornen Enkel.

Georg Trakl
(1887 – 1914)

Sophie Marceau: La Souterraine

Les treize histoires et sept poèmes qui composent ce livre se répondent et se complètent:

Au fil des récits, des fables, des fragments de vie, des poésies, il s’agit toujours de dévoiler un mystère, un secret, la part souterraine…

Les mots s’insinuent comme il faut pour toucher ce qu’il y a à toucher, et dire ce qu’il y a à en dire. Avec finesse et intensité.

Et c’est un plaisir de plonger dans ces textes – débordants d’imagination, de fantaisie, basculant souvent de l’observation la plus juste à une imprévisible drôlerie.

Sophie Marceau: actrice, réalisatrice et scénariste, elle publie avec La Souterraine son deuxième livre après Menteuse (Stock, 1996).

Rudyard Kipling: If (Poem)



If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling
(1865 – 1936)

The Rwanda Poems: Voices and Visions from the Genocide by Andrew Kaufman

The only book of poetry to date devoted to the Rwanda genocide and published in this country, this is a work of nonfictional poetry, a cousin in genre to the nonfictional novel.

It is based not only on the poet’s observations and encounters during months spent in post-genocide Rwanda, but on his numerous extensive interviews with survivors, all of whom lost most if not all of their families, and with convicted genocide perpetrators, conducted in prisons.

The result is a startling book of poems that by turns is unthinkably horrifying, heartbreaking, and enraging, yet which at times breaks unexpectedly into stunning revelatory moments of grace.

As a poetry of witness this book reveals what it is like to carry on with daily life in a society where nearly every adult male is either a genocide survivor or perpetrator, almost every woman either a survivor or the wife of a perpetrator, and where nearly every child at the time of the genocide witnessed multiple killings, often of immediate family members.

Ranging from free verse to stanzaic forms, this book by an NEA-award-winning poet uses tools and methods of poetry to distil each of its many varied voices to its essence, allowing those who are heard in these poems to speak for themselves, often in juxtapositions that lend the book the structure and tension of a drama. Considered more broadly, The Rwanda Poems is a book about the extremities of evil that the human psyche is capable of enduring and inflicting, and the resulting psychic costs to survivors and perpetrators.

Andrew Kaufman‘s books include Earth’s Ends, winner of the Pearl Poetry Prize, The Cinnamon Bay Sonnets, winner of the Center for Book Arts book award, Both Sides of the Niger (Spuyten Duyvil Press), and the COMPLETE CINNAMON BAY SONNETS (Rain Mountain Press). The time he spent in Rwanda was made possible in part by an NEA grant. He has taught literature and writing at a number of colleges and universities, and resides in New York City.

William Butler Yeats: An Image from a Past Life


An Image from a Past Life

He. Never until this night have I been stirred.
The elaborate star-light throws a reflection
On the dark stream,
Till all the eddies gleam;
And thereupon there comes that scream
From terrified, invisible beast or bird:
Image of poignant recollection.

She. An image of my heart that is smitten through
Out of all likelihood, or reason,
And when at last,
Youth’s bitterness being past,
I had thought that all my days were cast
Amid most lovely places; smitten as though
It had not learned its lesson.

He. Why have you laid your hands upon my eyes?
What can have suddenly alarmed you
Whereon ’twere best
My eyes should never rest?
What is there but the slowly fading west,
The river imaging the flashing skies,
All that to this moment charmed you?

She. A sweetheart from another life floats there
As though she had been forced to linger
From vague distress
Or arrogant loveliness,
Merely to loosen out a tress
Among the starry eddies of her hair
Upon the paleness of a finger.

He. But why should you grow suddenly afraid
And start — I at your shoulder —
That any night could bring
An image up, or anything
Even to eyes that beauty had driven mad,
But images to make me fonder?

She. Now she has thrown her arms above her head;
Whether she threw them up to flout me,
Or but to find,
Now that no fingers bind,
That her hair streams upon the wind,
I do not know, that know I am afraid
Of the hovering thing night brought me.

An Image from a Past Life

Wijnand van Lieshout: Tentoonstelling ‘L’Érotique du Regard’




‘Metropolitan Museum Tilburg’ – Stedekestraat 15 – 5041 DM Tilburg

vrijdag 5 mei t/m zondag 25 juni 2023

Wijnand van Lieshout, de nestor van de Tilburgse kunstwereld (83 jaar), is nog iedere nacht actief in zijn met relieken overladen appartement in Tilburg Noord. Hij kan het niet laten. Daar op dat flatje zes hoog ontstaat in het donker zijn magistrale werk. Raadselachtige en onnavolgbare werelden die verwijzen naar een ondermaanse ruimte, een onbekend universum dat zich bij iedere aanblik opnieuw ontsluit. Men kan er uren in verdwalen. Voer voor ieder nieuwsgierig oog, voor een gevoelige, haast zintuigelijke waarneming, l’Érotique du Regard.

Dit moet u zien, dit mag u niet ontgaan.

Deze eenmalige tentoonstelling in het ‘Metropolitan Museum’ aan de Stedekestraat in Tilburg toont tien wonderbaarlijke werken die de afgelopen maanden tot stand kwamen. Vers van de pers.

Romantische mijmeringen naar een vervlogen verleden dat wellicht nooit heeft bestaan.

Werken die voortvloeien uit vrijwel niets, uit een paar haren, wat half vergane lappen, stukjes uitgedroogde planten, resten van dode dieren, magisch licht, de mossels niet te vergeten, en bovenal stof, stof en nog eens stof. Blijkbaar kan dat.

Van Lieshout mag dan wel een spraakwaterval zijn waar geen speld tussen te krijgen is, maar als het op kijken aankomt is hij nauwelijks te evenaren. Zelden zal men iemand ontmoeten die zo geconcentreerd kan kijken en allerlei dingen ziet die voor ons tot een verborgen rijk behoren, de meest fantastische voorstellingen in een hoop alledaags stof.

De Kunst van het Kijken in optima forma, de gave van het onbevangen ontdekken. Dat is aan zijn werk af te lezen. Aan u de gelegenheid om het te komen zien, om u te laten verleiden door zijn onvergetelijke werk.

Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light. Fifty Poems for Fifty Years by Joy Harjo

Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light
Fifty Poems for Fifty Years
A magnificent selection of fifty poems to celebrate three-term US Poet Laureate Joy Harjo’s fifty years as a poet.

In this gemlike volume, Harjo selects her best poems from across fifty years, beginning with her early discoveries of her own voice and ending with moving reflections on our contemporary moment.

Weaving Sundown in a Scarlet Light traces every occasion of a lifetime; it offers poems on birth, death, love, and resistance; on motherhood and on losing a parent; on fresh beginnings amidst legacies of displacement.

Generous notes on each poem offer insight into Harjo’s inimitable poetics as she takes inspiration from sunrise and horse songs and jazz, reckons with home and loss, and listens to the natural messengers of the earth.

Joy Harjo is a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. She is the author of nine poetry collections and two memoirs, most recently Poet Warrior. The recipient of the 2023 Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award, the 2023 Bollingen Prize for American Poetry, and the 2017 Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, she lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Arthur Teboul: Le Déversoir – Poèmes minute

Le premier recueil de poésie d’Arthur Teboul, auteur et chanteur du groupe Feu! Chatterton.

Comme chanteur, Arthur Teboul incarne un esprit rock et romantique, entre popanglo-saxonne (Radiohead) et chanson française (Ferré, Gainsbourg, Bashung), entre ambiance feutrée d’un jazz club et néons perçants d’une scène underground ; poétique et inspiré, il est de ces nouvelles voix talentueuses qui parlent à la jeunesse et, brouillant les frontières habituelles entre les genres, redéfinissent de manière originale et séduisante la scène musicale en France.

Auteur des paroles du groupe (des paroles au caractère quasiment visionnaire, qui marquent par leur capacité à saisir l’air du temps), Arthur Teboul confesse qu’il est venu à la musique par la littérature. Il plaide pour une existence où la poésie aurait une plus grande part. On devine facilement qu’il porte en lui la dimension d’un écrivain.

De fait, entre les phases d’écriture des chansons de ses albums, il a pris l’habitude de composer ce qu’il appelle des poèmes minute, lors de séances de ” déversement ” ou d’écriture automatique. Entre le poème en prose et le récit onirique, ce sont de courts textes dont les idées et les émotions seraient les protagonistes, riches en inventions, pleins de mystère, de vivacité, de drôlerie, d’étrangeté et de beauté. Ils composent ce recueil, Le Déversoir.

Arthur Teboul est le chanteur de Feu! Chatterton. Après le succès de l’album Palais d’Argile et de son single Un monde nouveau qui lui ont valu trois nominations aux Victoires de la musique en 2022 (meilleur artiste masculin, meilleur album, meilleure chanson), le groupe a sillonné la France. Une impressionnante tournée couronnée de trois disques d’or, quis’est conclue par trois Olympia à guichet fermé. Le Déversoir est son premier recueil de poésie.
