Synopsis

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.

Yve Lomax is Professor in Art Writing at Goldsmiths College and Research Tutor for Fine Art/Photography at the Royal College of Art. Yve Lomax's books 'Writing the Image: An Adventure with Art and Theory' and 'Sounding the Event: Escapades in Dialogue & Matters of Art, Nature & Time' were published by I.B. Tauris in respectively 2000 and 2004. Yve Lomax is a remarkable artist and writer, who has established a practice of writing that is unique within contemporary Fine Art. Her work has helped to establish a new discipline of Art Writing, which provides a particular space for a critical and analytical approach to writing within contemporary art. 'Passionate Being', as Anne Tallentire observes, 'is both a culmination of and a departure from previous work', including her two earlier books for Tauris.
