In the eight drawings in this artist book, Jürgen Partenheimer comes to grips with quotations from James Joyce–s Finnegans Wake, the last great work by the Irish writer, in which Joyce explored a subconscious dream world via a language he partly made up on his own. Partenheimer takes on this lyrical and onomatopoetic vocabulary by means of an extraordinarily sensitive application of lines and strokes that become poetic notations of the enigmatic world of Finnegans Wake.
