Simulacrum Press #11: ‘ADDDA’ by Sacha Archer

ADDDA

ADDDA is a 12×17″ print by Sacha Archer. The last of three works printed in Tianjin, China, ADDDA has been produced in an edition of 25 copies.

Chosen from an ongoing series of collages by Sacha Archer, ADDDA continues Archer’s exploration of compositional techniques as applied to concrete poetry. In his collage work, the animal (and representational) is always trying to push through–sometimes more, sometimes less evidently. In these works, and ADDDA is no exception, there is a persistent tension between the letter, form and gesture.

Sacha Archer is a writer and visual artist, as well as being the editor of Simulacrum Press. Archer’s first full-length collection of poetry, Detour, was published by gradient books (2017), followed by Zoning Cycle (Simulacrum Press, 2017). His most recent chapbooks are 2068 (Simulacrum, 2018), and upROUTE (above/ground press, 2017). He has a chapbook of visual poems forthcoming from Inspiritus Press entitled TSK oomph. He reviews, interviews and writes what he pleases at sachaarcher.wordpress.com. Archer lives in Ontario, Canada.
