Jenny Hval

For far too long experimental poetry has been isolated, from both the poetry mainstream in the UK and from practises in the visual and sonic arts which share its primary concerns. Experimental music and sound poetry, and collage / conceptual art and concrete poetry has so much in common and yet they are divided. There are younger artists breaking this divide, and Jenny Hval, a brilliant singer, musician, poet and theorist from Oslo is doing some groundbreaking work at the moment.
