Mónica Ezquerra is a Spanish artist who works with photography, collage and video art. All of their creations have a deep poetic essence, sometimes underlying, sometimes clear. This is “Anomia”.
After dissecting arthropods in collage series “Menagerie”, in “Anomia” Mónica performs a conceptual dissection of the components of a poem. This video is based on the original recording of Ulises Carrión’s “Poema” (1977), a litany of the semantic categories that build the skeleton of a poem empty of any meaning but exposed in its structure. Title. Text. Stanza. Verse. Word. In terms of imagery, a stream of signals constantly in motion, repetitions, duplications, a visual essay that recalls the sediment layers. In fact, as she herself describes:
“Sediments, clottings, projections that language exercises in me.
Their flows, fluids, intensitiy streams. Dismantling.
After the indecisive labile of language word speech, who is left?”
