Overview

Internationally acclaimed Slovenian poet Tomaz Salamun wrote Blackboards in 1997, and two years later celebrated Slovenian artist Metka Krasovec painted “Trak,” a captivating series of images spanning one long scroll of paper. Joined together, as poet John Yau writes in his introduction, “Salamun’s melancholia and Krasovec’s sense of longing set in motion… a dance of words and images, of words that evoke images we cannot picture, and images that define a world that cannot be contained in words.”
