Acting in the Library – “Offside Effect”, 1st Tbilisi Triennial – Literature Museum, Tbilisi, Georgia, 2012

A circular road trip with the car, reading Kerouac’s “On The Road” in the backseat, ripping pages constantly out of the book and throwing them out ‘to set the words free’. After that, collecting them back to conserve in plastic ID cards. In the end, exhibiting them – clean and safe. (Of course I couldn’t collect them all. Those I couldn’t find are still ‘on the road’. Maybe not, may be.)

remains
of the road
wrong
has the right
to be
old

what is visible
what is moving
what moves you

is that you?
that is that

a soft bird

hard
to be
heard

move on
darling

she said

you look ugly in every picture
dead-
pan
shaky head
don’t be
sad
be-
cause you
are in complete
a moving beauty

he said

beauty
remains
in the impossibilities
of the body
