Spit Temple

Spit Temple
  • Title: Spit Temple
  • Authors: Cecilia Vicuña
  • Publisher: Ugly Duckling Press
  • Published Date: 2012
  • Description: The first overview of the work of this seminal multi-disciplinary artist, Spit Temple collects texts and transcriptions of Cecilia Vicuna's uncategorizable improvised performances, which combine singing, movement, chants, and stories. Also included are a critical introduction by Rosa Alcala, a poetic memoir by Vicuna addressing her life in performance, images from Vicuna's extensive personal archive, and response pieces by Maria Damon, Linda Duke, Nada Gordon, Jena Osman, Kenneth Sherwood, Juliana Spahr, Dennis Tedlock, Edwin Torres, and Rodrigo Toscano. "Vicuna's work, at its very essence, is 'a way of remembering'--as if exile and recall joined to unravel an 'autobiography in debris;' as one personal story within a larger narrative." --Roberto Tejada
