“an other being”
a collaboration of the poetry of Tony Brathwaite together with the Artwork of David McConkey
at the Joe Keefe Gallery 48 Little Harbour Road Barr’d Island
Newfoundland and Labrador
“an other being is many things. A collaboration between a visual artist and a poet, the work lives in dialogue. Often, David and Tony say, they surprised each other by what was
seen, what was written, what was drawn. There’s a tension in Tony’s poetry that refuses to release in easy answers, and David’s drawings come from a deeply-felt kinetic and creative connection with his own body. For over 15 years, David and Tony have been partners, and it’s not hard to read something about relationship in this work.
we dance closer together through time
ends the book. It’s a poem about death that ends up affirming life. A collaboration in the truest sense, this beautiful book does indeed birth an other being.”
