Passionate Being

Language, Singularity and Perseverance


Written through both the first and second person singular, 'Passionate Being' takes its author and its reader on a journey that has them thinking of their experience of and belonging to language and the possibility of an instance of the world taking-place without prejudice and exclusion. At its beginning, it brings to its author the question ‘What can you say?’ The responses that ensue turn our attention toward presupposition and about how ‘singularity’ can be said. The book also brings into play, among others, the work of Giorgio Agamben. It asks us to view both language and the world taking-place without presupposition, revealing both the political implications, and those for living, that this vision holds. It is a work to be read twice with pleasure, and then again. 'Here Yve Lomax, one of the most original and significant artists and writers working today, proves again why her work has been central to the establishment of the discipline of Art Writing. 'Passionate Being' is both culmination of and departure from previous work. It takes the "art of writing" to a new dimension and is crucial reading for all those who seek an immersive experience with language and the world.' - Anne Tallentire, Professor of Fine Art, Central St Martins College of Art and Design
