Territorial Poetics (I: awareness) consists of a mixed media installation of neon text, stones and soil.
The short poetic phrase ‘in the name of atonement, we re-inscribe every day’ made of neon light is
placed into a rectangular shape of soil and stones, forming a spatial extension of meaning. The work
forms a territorial narrative using light and earth materials, open to multiple interpretations. The
selected sentence, taken from the artist’s personal poetic collection ‘Tundra’ (2017), is
deterritorialized from its initial space (book) and is re-territorialized into physical space (building) as
an in-situ luminous seed – proposing a ‘geo-philosophy’ – a metaphorical terrain both as human and
social body upon which our efforts are constantly re-inscribed towards a potential future self.
Current neon installation situates the poetic thought into the spatial, revealing an in-situ dialogue
between the human, the political and the poetic.
