The Bottleneck

“I am infinitely strange to myself.”

We all write poems; it is simply that poets are the ones who write in words.

Dieter Roth - Worktables

"The genesis of these works dates from the 1980s, when Roth decided to place gray cardboard mats on the worktables in the studios of his various homes and apartments.

He initially used them as writing mats, covering them with doodles, sketches, and all the ‘traces of domestic activities,’ as he put it.

The mats eventually became the foundation for all manner of collages and assemblages, a progression through time with continually shifting arrangements of objects and drawings, their seemingly anarchic placement achieving a certain ‘symmetrical ornamentation.’”
