About the Author
Exploring the infinite social, political, intimate possibilities of language, Oana Avasilichioaei's work traverses textual architecture, orality, and multilingualism (We, Beasts, 2012, winner of the Quebec Writers' Federation A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry); translation and collaboration (Expeditions of a Chimæra, co-written with Erín Moure, 2009); geography and public space (feria: a poempark, 2008). In recent years, Avasilichioaei has also been mapping poetry into performative sound work (oanalab.com). Born in Romania and living in Montreal, Canada, she has translated poetry and prose from Romanian (Nichita Stanescu, Occupational Sickness, 2006, as well as Paul Celan) and from Quebecois French (Louise Cotnoir, The Islands, 2011; Daniel Canty, Wigrum, 2013; Bertrand Laverdure, Universal Bureau of Copyrights, 2014). Avasilichioaei has edited several magazine issues, including Poetry in Translation from Quebec, Aufgabe, New York, 2013, and The Mapping Issue, Dandelion, Calgary, 2011. Current projects include Thresholds, which transposes some of the work in Limbinal into sound performances and immersive installations, as well as a collaborative translation with Ingrid Pam Dick of Suzanne Leblanc's The House as P's Thinking, forthcoming 2015.
