Cat Miller & Rafael MC have been selected to exhibit a collaborative piece entitled: ‘Holiness of the Heart’, 2019, Paper cut-out & collage. The artwork features a poem entitled: ‘Holiness of the Heart’ by British writer Cat Miller that has been translated into different languages and will be accompanied by a limited edition Artists Book / Zine featuring the poem’s translations. The purpose of the poem is to remind people of their spiritual wellbeing. Holiness of the Heart has been translated into French, Spanish and Italian and more recently into P’urhépecha, an indigenous dialect from Michoacan, Mexico.
Language is pivotal in the areas of human rights protection, good governance, peace building, reconciliation, and sustainable development.
The A1 wing-shaped diptych is a concrete poetry art piece inspired by Luciano De Crescenzo’s great quote: “We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another”.
