Felix Bernstein Notes on Post-conceptual Poetry | Evening Will Come, The Volta

Felix Bernstein debuted on YouTube with his real and satirical Coming Out Video in 2008. Since then he’s embodied characters ranging from Amy Winehouse to Lamb Chop to Leopold (peter) Brant. He performed in George Kuchar’s late diary films; Synonym for Untitled (Andrew Lampert’s multimedia piece for the Whitney restaurant); and Red Krayola’s opera Victorine (which he co-directed at the 2012 Whitney Biennial). His criticism has been published, or is forthcoming, in The Brooklyn RailHtmlgiant, and The Boston Review. With Gabe Rubin, he sang Jellicle Cats for nearly four hours on GaussPDF and directed the movies Boyland and Unchained Melody; together they front the punk band Tender Cousins. – Evening Will Come: Bio | The Volta, May 2014

ANA BOZICEVIC, 36

Skinny dirt road

In the middle of the ocean.

That led to the house of art.

I took it. The engine nearly

Drowned. I lied that it was fun

That I’d do it again. When I got to

That shore

The house was gone and when

I looked back, so was the path.

Now I’m old. Drown in my bed

A thousand miles inland.

— from “Joyride”

The Prospect Lefferts Gardens artist has published two poetry collections, “Stars of the Night Commute” and “Rise in the Fall,” and launched a service that periodically texts pieces of her upcoming book to subscribers. She’s part of a poetry/performance duo with fellow writer Sophia Le Fraga that converts verses into stage spectacles.
