spatial poem, a study of a body in between the space and the poem


Huone (A Room) explores poetry and performance art as a lens to investigate relativity between a body and a space. Within the form of spatial poem Huone examines the bodily experience of otherness through poetry and immersive scenographic scenes. The text, sound, spatiality and visuality of the work search through rich but minimalistic sceneries to find compassion and togetherness from where it had been lost.
