Łukasz Matuszyk Instytut Kultur i Literatur AnglojęzycznychWydział FilologicznyUniwersytet Śląski w Katowicach test "A Liberary Body and Its (v)eye/olation"Abstract Focusing on Zenon Fajfer and Katarzyna Bazarnik’s “model” liberary piece entitled Oka-leczenie ((v)eye/olation, first published in 2000), the article argues that the widely-understood physical shape of a liberary work is inevitable for its proper reading and comprehending. In this paper liberature is discussed as a total literature because of the fact that not only the text and additional visual elements are essential for the reading process, but also because the physical aspects of a work, e.g. empty or cut places, convey the message and express certain senses by means of their silent presence. The liberary body is described as one which may be hurt, destroyed, or even dead. Moreover, liberature is presented as a literature which not only records and conveys a certain content but also shows it through its very specific body and the content that was inscribed in it.
