WANDERING ECHOES: HANDBOOK OF OPERATIVES LOSSES by Luis Guerra
150 x 210mm, 200 pages, Black & white printing, Perfect bound, Softcover, 2022
Between philosophical essay and poetic experimentation, this text by the Chilean philosopher and artist pays tribute to Fernand Deligny, whose work on autism has allowed a more experimental understanding of difference.
Wandering Echoes veers between philosophical thought and poetic experimentation, asking for a reading by way of multiple and meandering lines. Underpinning the book is a profound engagement with Fernand Deligny, whose work with autistic children in the 1960s and 70s posed a more experimental understanding of the diversely abled. Wandering Echoes is a work under the influence of Deligny, amplifying his gestural philosophy through lines of thought whose echoes and vibrations lead into a labyrinthine text of personal experience, soft moments and deep restlessness. Subtle and demanding, the book is ultimately an act of poetic-doing which, for the author, enables emergent forms of solidarity.
