“A line is a dot that went for a walk" (Paul Klee) and keeps on going, spiraling, morphing into texts and books, graphics and typography, maps and topography, drawings and moving images, collages/assemblages and objects, music and sound, a line made by walking, a picket line and lines of code.
Inspired by Paul Klee's quote, metaMorph points to the ongoing synthesis between media initiated by the concrete poetry movement that continues in other art forms today, and relates to what art theorist Rosalind Krauss has called the 'post-medium condition', an entwined helix of genres and modes of production that holds unending potential for contemporary creativity.
Moving fluidly between the visual/visible, phonetic/sonic and gestural/performative manifestations of language, the participating poets will experiment with multivocality, multilingualism, spoken word, rhythm, time, narrative and noise, ultimately contributing to the potential of the poetic voice to re-enchant the world.
Friday 19 May 8.30pm @ POINT (Str. G-ral Eremia Grigorescu 10 - Bucharest)
