Kiwao Nomura, Forrest Gander & Kyoko Yoshida at Poets House

Embodying the dynamism that is the hallmark of Kiwao Nomura’s work, this selection of video and photographs were taken at “Nerve Ant,” a reading and conversation held at Poets House on 15 September 2011. More than just a performance and Q&A, “Nerve Ant” was a celebration of Spectacle and Pigsty, Nomura’s first book of poems to be published in English. Joining him were acclaimed translators Forrest Gander, Kyoko Yoshida, and his wife, dancer Mariko Nomura.

Kiwao Nomura‘s poem, “nightly we are taken,” is featured on p. 22 of Issue One – Winter 2011.
