Bronwyn Preece: Sol/Sticed

Video & Poem

Last month, we were delighted to welcome Canadian performance artist Bronwyn Preece to ONCA where she shared the images from ‘Sol/Sticed’ – her extended project of photographing trees at dawn and dusk – in an improvised performance/ installation in the courtyard, accompanied by local harpist Tracy Jane Sullivan.

Photo•Synthesis : Sol•Sticed 2017 from Bronwyn Preece on Vimeo.

Many thanks to Bronwyn for coming, and for this film and poem that she created in response to the event at ONCA.

Poem

i am

plastic

forest :

seagull shatted

caged and

crypted (in/en) of

Being, of feeling :

 

see through

 

who has never hugged a tree?

this is god’s poetry

with childhood friends

in a brick playground

 

we are the music of

these projections,

the timing of our perspectives,

harped subtexts of intuition

myrrhed through weather and wind

spoken

aloud :

 

quietly

intimately

 

is this devotion :

a love affair of isolation

loneliness and

engagement?

 

Together

we are all

dancers :

 

photographed

 

strung and

clipped in wood
