Marvellous poems wiht a dazzling illustrations of well known venezuelan plastic artists. A book that shows us how is the intimate process of the writer which ends in wonderful poems and also the marriage, the interpretation of a reader, the illustrator who works also on the writing generating another original piece of art. A perfect edition!
In April 2010, during the celebrations of the month of the poetry in Caracas, the Alliance Française organized an art exhibition that presented a selection of forty of Rafela ´s poems illustrated by different Venezuelan plastic artists. The result of this experience is the edition of "Espectáculo Intimo", a publication that combines the construction-deconstruction work of different hands, where the writing process and the tools used by the writer to create her text -papers, drafts, erasures, notes and observations- work as an inspiration material in parallel with the plastic development that it generates. Is a fine art-poetry book1
