ONCE AGAIN I'M FALLING,
ONCE AGAIN IT'S NIGHT


M Kitchell is an artist and yogi who lives and works in the Bay Area. Much of his work, especially in the form of books and pamphlets, is documented on this website—similarly, much of his work has been neglected, sacrificed to the void, waiting to be either entirely forgotten or rediscovered.

Dedicated to obsessive research and the literal act of finding, Kitchell is primarily concerned with the impossible (or, perhaps, the outside) and levitation. An expanded list of his targets include landscape as limit experience, hunting the void, ecstatic states, inversion practice, Georges Bataille's list of apparently soveriegn behaviors, the space of the book and flicker films.

In 2013 he co-founded the Institute for Erotic Vertigo along with Pierre Abidi and Emanuelle X. The institute investigates the ritualized aspects of the text and other paratextual events with an aim of bringing about a solution to the problem of the work. Their collective efforts can be found online among a maze of labyrinthine space.

He can be contacted by email.

"It is touching, it is sweet—madly—to no longer see, from all sides, anything but the deserted expanse of folly. It is like going away into the night, into the snow, going away without knowing where: the silence of the snow carries the footsteps into the silence of the universe."
—Georges Bataille
