Sangro, Pero No Muero (I Bleed, But Do Not Die)

Valladolid, Spain: Ayuntamiento de Valladolid, 2010. First Edition. Softcover. Inscribed & signed by Isa Sanz to Charles Plymell; signed by Charles Plymell. "The artworks that picture this catalog show a group of women, alone or with other women being in different ages, naked over neutral backgrounds. Each of them becoming visible in the public space through photography or video, but also opening a part of their intimacy: the menstrual blood flowing through their legs or pointing out, like a bindu, some different parts of their body." (from commentary by Marta Mantecon) A small booklet-catalog with images from the titled exhibit held at the Teatro Calderon in Valladolid, Spain during 2010 by the noted feminist multi-media Spanish artist Isa (Isabel) Sanz. With texts in Spanish & in English translation by Mantecon; & "Perceptions" (quotes about Sanz & her work) by Charles Plymell & others. On title page, Sanz has hand-written & signed in blue ink: "Dear Charles:/ Many kisses under the/ red petals rain./ It's an honor for me your/ presence in this project./ (signed or initialed) Isa Sanz." Plymell, the legendary American poet, printer, publisher & Ultimate Literary Outlaw, provides several laudatory blurb-quotes as noted above. At the end of his second quote, below his printed name, Plymell has hand-written his signature in pink ink. As Plymell writes in his first quote, "Isa Sanz has explored the Open Wound in her art forms. She has endeavored to expand our consciousness into a very private world that has been mostly overlooked, shunned, or even ridiculed throughout history. She has opened my eyes to a natural word (sic) that has no boundaries in our lives and in the cosmos." A rare & most provocative production with outstanding association & provenance; obtained by us from our good friend & inspiration Plymell himself. In very fine condition with only very mild rubbing, scratching to front, back covers & spine; light wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of some page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3502]
