“There and then or poetics of space”

In residency would like to create installation work with working title “There and then or poetics of space”, work will discover sensitivity to places, spaces, language, and literature, belongings, imagination, and identity. I will work with local people in Finland and ask them to select their favorite poem or story (or rather their own made stories). I will recreate these stories in theatrical mise-en-scène on video filmed around Finland. Depending on story or poem I will make theatrical scenes with actors or with local people, who would be interested. Poetry uses forms and conventions to suggest a differential interpretation to words or to evoke emotive responses. Devices such as rhythm, assonance are sometimes used to achieve musical or poetic effects. The use of ambiguity, symbolism, irony and other stylistic elements of poetic diction often leaves a poem open to multiple interpretations. Similarly figures of speech create a resonance between otherwise disparate images - a layering of meanings, forming connections previously not perceived. Work result will be multilayer installation consisting of videos, photos, notes from inhabitants and self-made book (with locals) out of selected poems or stories.
