Berssenbrugge/Smith collaboration

My history at Kelsey Street began in 2006 with the publication of Concordance, a collaboration between poet Mei-mei Berssenbrugge and visual artist Kiki Smith. Our artists don’t illustrate, any more than our writers caption images. These books are true collaborations, by which I mean a collective labor in which each party puts the same number of peas on each side of the scale. The weight is light, the way the soul is light, and yet, the balance is maintained between artists whose work speaks for itself without the words that accompany it, and vice versa.
