A collaboration between artist Gabrielle Senza and poet Marc Zegans, Pillow Talk explores the human comedy through erotic haiku and graphite images drawn with sensitivity and light.

Senza and Zegans’ collaboration unfolds as a conversation between form and text playing out across the pages of a pillow book, an intimate
set of musings on eros expressed in raucous, tender, vulnerable human form.

Speaking different languages, male and female, line and word, sound and shape, Zegans and Senza turn in to each other, gently, allowing life to find its balance in the shared, quiet moments of pillow talk.

Artist-activist, Gabrielle Senza is internationally recognized as an environmental artist, social activist, educator, curator and writer. She exhibits widely and has work in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, Fidelity Investments, Paine Webber, and in private collections around the world. She has taught at Mass MoCA, Cooper Union and Bard College of Simon’s Rock. She is the founder and director of the creative public arts initiative, Red Collaborative.

Marc Zegans is a poet, playwright and author. His current work explores waking dreams and human fragility in the post-industrial landscape. Marc’s play, Mum and Shah, co-written with Colby Devitt, was a Boston Globe “Pick of the Week”.

His spoken word Album, “Night Work” was released by Philistine Records in August 2007. Erin Cressida Wilson, author of the films, “Secretary” and “Fur” describes “Night Work” as, “erotic and sad, a logue of girls: broken-hearted, cruel and grieving – a celebration of love and naughty women…” press
