I'll be blunt: I believe Isabelle Lartault's work is one of the very best in contemporary French poetry—and I am incredibly difficult in that matter.
My own work was merely a few months old when she offered me to join her for Le Jour de la sirène.
You can be sure to hear me quote her at some point or another.
On the first Wednesday of every month, emergency sirens are triggered across France as a maintenance test.
Le jour de la sirène is a series of exhibitions opening exclusively on those occasions.
