What is it about that New York rhythm of intellectual engagement that mesmerises, convinces, becalms, and at the same time energises us? Lorens Holm has it in spades.
A laid back articulacy and a causal, confident accuracy that delights –as did Lacan – in the wordiness of all our conditions. Holm puts us rigorously in the spaces we desire, while telling us that we can’t ever have what we want. It’s a cute manoeuvre. You can see it performed on film here at the AA in London.
