The Mirror Of Simple Souls

The Mirror Of Simple Souls is a hand made libretto for an experimental opera. Anne Carson wrote the poems or arias, and Kim Anno made the images. The story is about a medieval heretic name Margurete Porete, who wrote an ecstatic text called The Mirror of Simple Souls. She advocated against church hierarchy, had followers, and was burned at the stake in Paris in 1310. This opera was also a live performance that was produced in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, and Ann Arbor, Michigan. The book was produced and printed at St. John’s University and the Minnesota Center for the Book in Minneapolis.
Sleep

Is an unfinished book by Kim Anno and Anne Carson, about sleeping, dreaming, and consciousness.
The Albertine Work Out

“It is always tricky, the question whether to read an author’s work in light of his life or not.”

The Albertine Workout is collaboration between artist Kim Anno and author Anne Carson. The book combines text and images exploring the life and times of Proust’s character Albertine, the unique and unforgettable “captive” from Book V of Remembrances of Things Past. Albertine may or may not have been based on a real person in Proust’s life, his erstwhile chauffeur, Alfred Agostinelli. There is a deep, sweet pathos in the unknowable relation between these two beloveds, with Proust in between.

Kim Anno swore on “pain of death” not to illustrate the text. There is a page of the image of a torn tweed suit, a fire red velvet diagonal fold, some green plant fronds, two portraits, and a series of folds, wrinkles and cuts in what appear to be pages of a book. One is never sure if the cuts are fragmented or the whole.
