Richard Kraft: Here Comes Kitty

New from Siglio! Richard Kraft: Here Comes Kitty released this week to great advance press, including Megan N. Liberty's long review in Hyperallergic. "Richard Kraft’s Here Comes Kitty: A Comic Opera explodes off the page. Kraft, a multidisciplinary artist, pastes images of Hindu gods next to exercise diagrams and drawings of monkeys and elephants into bars and restaurants — all superimposed on a pre-existing 1960s Cold War–era comic. Equally bizarre and juxtaposed fragments of text, composed by Danielle Dutton, accompany the images. The effect is seductive. To use the words of Dutton, 'It’s something about being read to as a child, where you are starting to fall asleep, and the same book has been read to you over and over, and these familiar images keep coming up, and there is a tug of the narrative, but you’re falling asleep at the same time.' Kraft’s collages and Dutton’s textual 'interpolations' tug at the edges of the reader’s imagination and memory." Also fascinating is poet Ann Lauterbach's long interview with the artist.
