Sabine Mirlesse, MFA Photo ’11 Releases New Book: Pietra di Luce

Written by:


“The journey Mirlesse invites us to make is projected, like Dante’s own wildly errant, itinerant book, toward our own interior, toward the intimacy of our desires. Ultimately, desires are made of stars: to desire indeed comes from the Latin de and sidere; which carries the powerful meaning of looking eagerly at the stars, the things that move us and attract us toward them, the beloved things. In accordance with this journey through ambiguities, the particle de may be interpreted in two different ways: a de-sire could be the joyful act of hoping something (from the stars) or the painful act of moving your look away from your loved ones. And our desire, made of the same matter as the stars, lies beyond the folds of our flesh, within the pages of our books, within the hearth of our mountains.” excerpt from ED ENTRAMMO A VEDER LE STELLE, by Federica Soletta

Mirlesse is having a book signing on November 7, 2019 at 7pm at Polycopies (Port de Solferino, barge in front of 23 quai Anatole France 75007 Paris)
