AMAzone Palabrarmas by Cecilia Vicuña
AMAzone Palabrarmas by Cecilia Vicuña and translated by James O'Hern was printed in an edition of 200 by The Circadian Press on the occasion of the exhibition Cecilia Vicuña: PALABRARman at the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, University of Chicago in March of 2018.
"The one-word poem/drawings that compose the AMAzone Palabrarmas book were created in Bogotá in 1978 after a trip to the Amazon where the vision of an embodied Palabrarma came to me: an Indian girl flying with a word-weapon in hand: a shovel with wings. Her vision of words made her fly, and she danced and laughed as she flew." - Cecilia Vicuña, 2018
