Vanessa Place and Robert Fitterman’s Notes on Conceptualisms, Mary Kelly
said, “I learned more about the impact of conceptualism on artists and writers
than I had from reading so-called canonical works on the subject.” Kenneth
Goldsmith has called Place’s Statement of Facts “arguably the most
challenging, complex and controversial literature being written today.” Place is
also author of Dies: A Sentence, La Medusa, and The Guilt
Project: Rape, Morality and Law, based on her work as an attorney
representing indigent sex offenders on appeal. Place is co-director of Les
Figues Press, and a regular contributor to X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly.
Her most recent work is available in French by éditions è®e, as Exposé des
Faits and in English by Blanc Press, as Statement of Facts.
Statement of Poetics
Authorship doesn’t matter. Content doesn’t matter. Form doesn’t matter. Meter
doesn’t matter. All that matters is the trace of poetry.
