The nine acts explore the new pandemic reality of immobility, vulnerability and emotional turmoil through creative engagement. Each act combines a visual work and a poem based on it. I made the sketches and paintings in 2020-21 and added poetic reflections in 2022. The poetic layer emerged as an experiment in picture-informed linguistic associations, where compositional and painterly elements in the visual works, and the embodied memories of their making, informed the imagination.
