I have been invited by Rafael MC to take part in The Mexican Embassy’s Camaradas MX-UK / Comrades UK-MX 2019 Exhibition due to take place at the Menier Gallery, London, March 12th-16th. I will produce a concrete poetry Diptych featuring a poem I wrote in 2009 entitled: Holiness of the Heart which was inspired by John Keats quote: ‘I am certain of nothing but of the holiness of the hearts affections and the truth of imagination’.
It will be accompanied by a limited edition Artists Book / Zine featuring the poems translations into French, Spanish and Italian.
The purpose of the poem is to remind people of one’s spiritual wellbeing through the medium of language, which is pivotal in the areas of human rights protection, good governance, peace building, reconciliation, and sustainable development.
The wing-shaped diptych is a concrete poetry art piece inspired by another of my favourite quotes by Luciano De Crescenzo: “We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another”.
