Being in Domain​ - X

2020 - ongoing project

Where words run dry, meanings rise within the poetry of body in the silence of senses, 'Being In Domain - X' series depicts that metaphorical space in the cross-world of words and thoughts. Inspired by the psycholinguistic feature that occurs in target language transmission, interpreting the vulnerable area of language conveyance. With a study on psycholinguistics draws poetry of communication beyond the words, within bodies. Addressing the poverty of language and perpetual longing for connection. 

Language, perhaps, is a privilege for human beings, provides possibilities for communication. But in fact, it's a system of symbols and signs, which we- humans, attach voice and meaning to exhibit our soul and our mind to the exterior of our body. It works as bridges between the deepest places of our being to the surface of our existence. Today, the world is a veritable tower of Babel with thousands of spoken languages alongside thousands of cross-linguistic in the fact of bilingualism and multilingualism. We can talk, translate, interpret within, and between languages. Yet, we all are so hurt and vulnerable for not being heard. My works dwell in those meeting points, emphasizing the significance of the metaphorical approach over the literal language. 

Literature, philosophy, and psychology have long inspired me. The metaphorical and actual space of Gaston Bachelard's 'The Poetics of Space' and ethereal poetry behind Virginia Woolf's 'A Room of One' Own' and 'On Being Ill' – provide discreet associations with my work. 

 

In my pieces, body situates as the locus of a network of concerns— emotions, feelings, responses. The body-related sculpture, transparent skin-print space relief installation, and superimposed sound- associated video art ponder the incompleteness of language. Asking the truism of words and the concept of communication and perception, in a challenge of the movement of poesia visiva (visual poetry) and conceptualism.
