Interview: Oana Avasilichioaei in The Puritan

The Puritan magazine has published an intriguing interview by Erín Moure with Talon poet Oana Avasilichioaei, author of Limbinal, which was published this past spring.

The interview is absolutely worth a read; Avasilichioaei discusses the relationship between her writing and her performances of it, with consideration for the process of immersing one’s self in text and, as the interviewer describes it, the “visceral” effect of Limbinal and performances of it. In the author’s words,

I really want to explore what it means to be immersed in language, to explore how you can take something that begins in a point but then shifts and begins to encompass an entire space, so that the source is enlarged and ripples outwards three-dimensionally. The sound-space relation is critical.
