The show presents various short texts, which could be described as poems, thoughts, one’s inner self. These powerful written lines are staged within a almost dark room, under accentuating light, granting the words even more power.
“Wait until even the building collapses
wait until even the mosquito sleeps
chopped meat all over the floor”
The exhibition is curated by Harry Burke for The Printed Room.
