Prevenance Suite is a series of “quarantine collages” by poet, scholar, translator and editor Brent Edwards. Interwoven with a series of poems, comprised of fragmentary quotations clipped from a wide range of sources, the work proposes a theory of collage as “prevenance”: a practice that bends and reshapes time through the recombination of print artifacts from different historical sources and moments. For Edwards, the contrapuntal aesthetics of collage is above all a matter of achieving a certain sound.
