The text explores the work of the Brazilian artists Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain in their multifarious relationship with the legacies of translation theory, poetic concretism, and the visual poetry of Kitasono Katue. In conversation with Detanico Lain and the Paris-based art critic and theorist Federico Nicolao, we wonder through their recent body of work and through the constellation of artists, literary authors, and scientists whose poetic paths approached and intersected with their own.
