What does it mean to eat a poem? Through poetry writing and eating, sugar papers and palettes, Vienna-based artists Yela An, Ting-Jung Chen and Miae Son ask how writers “transform feelings into words” and subsequently into confectionery. This performance invites Los Angeles poets alongside workshop participants, including literary and performance academics, to contribute texts centering on traditional poetic forms and structures found throughout Asia. Each of the poems will be inscribed with the four seasons, a critical element in poetry genres from Asia, and transposed into writing. Artist-produced sugar boards and ink serve as props to the literary workshop and performance, which will subsequently be consumed as an act of nourishment and pleasure-practice.

1:1:2 unfolds in three parts over three nights, featuring one poet/artist per night: through writing, reading, and digesting. This oratory and oral activity enacted within the Schindler House transforms the modernist house with Japanese associations into a staging ground for an exploration on the history of sweetness, consumption, and migration that spans continents.

1:1:2 is part of the centennial celebration of the Schindler House, made possible with support from the Graham Foundation for Art and Architecture, City of West Hollywood, California Arts Council, Department of Cultural Affairs, Taiwan Academy of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Los Angeles, the MAK Center Centennial Council, the MAK Center Patron program, and our sponsors.

Video Preview @ Virtual Arbeitszimmer thealit

From her studio work at thealit's Arbeitszimmer (COAPPARATION* part 3) YeLa An already presents first results. Some of her Bremen interview series with Corean artists are prepared to be shown as a preview in our ’Virtual Arbeitszimmer.’ 

It's on the situation of these women, anti-Asian resentments in the times of COVID-19, on sexism and much more: "Indeed, they narrate why they thematize Asian female identities and Asian bodies in their artistic works." Let's find out about that! The interviews are the first part of her project Sorrow, in the Tireless Year.

This project is not only supported by thealit Frauen.Kultur.Labor. also supported by the BMKÖS and Bildrecht.

To be seen Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 7 p.m. at thealit's website
