Isabel Miquel Arqués in dialogue with
Beyond Borders. Isabel Miquel Arqués in dialogue with Karen Blixen is published by Ludion and is part of a trilogy that is an artistic dialogue between the artist and female icons such as Karen Blixen, Virginia Woolf and Georgia O'Keeffe. In the first part of this trilogy, Isabel links her own life to that of the Danish writer Karen Blixen by means of photographs, screen prints and short fragments of prose and poetry. Arqués interweaves the impressions that she gathered in Blixen's house, world, novels and biography into a new story of poetic images.
