Oana Avasilichioaei

Some of the strands in Oana Avasilichioaei’s work traverse geography and public space (feria: a poempark, 2008), textual architecture, orality and multilingualism (We, Beasts, 2012), translation and collaborative performance (Expeditions of a Chimæra, co-written with Erín Moure, 2009). Living in Montreal, she has also translated poetry from the Romanian of Nichita Stanescu (Occupational Sickness, 2006) and from the Quebecois French of Louise Cotnoir (The Islands, 2011). Recent projects include writing commentaries on Canadian experimental poetry for Jacket and transforming text into sound work, some of which can be found at Penn Sound.
