ON "AUGURIES OF INNOCENCE"
"Patti Smith’s poems from Auguries of Innocence have a timeless, heraldic, and Blakeian voice, complemented in Ziegler’s installation by an umbrella skeleton found in the trash, poems on stained rice paper that spall off the ribs, and shroud- like bookbinder’s gauze, as well as shadows on the wall."
From the exhibit catalog, Looseleaf, SOIL Gallery, 2011.
