Fragment of Self -Decoding

#Voice 3


Curated by Dagmar I. Glausnitzer - Smith and Charles Ryder

(Where Do I come from? Where do I belong? Where I am going?)

Audio Voice of myself

a Poem narrating the State

I arrived somewhere near me

Where I am

Where I am

Where I am

Lost in the crowd

I …I …..I

Slowly Arriving To myself…

Grasping the self

Breathing Deep …

Lost in the crowd

Slowly…., Slowly… I am arriving to myself

Seen Not Seen

The Play of Light and Dark

The play of Hide and Seek

I am arriving

I am arriving somewhere near me

Light and Dark

I love seeing myself

Love the non-presence

Criss Cross Lines of Infinity

Trying to reach trying to reach

Lines of Infinity

The infinite Space is it inside our mind? or it is outside in the space?

If it is infinite and it needs to expand, can it expand within?

I am arriving somewhere near me

Sometimes I whisper like a child and laugh at myself….

I am Alone within the crowd

The infinite Existence around me is like small light of the city

The Spark of the city

Sometimes it sparks less

I am Lost again I am lost again

Sometimes I am playful seeking Happiness within..

And sometime ….. Sometimes


Sometimes Like Baby, I cry

I arrived somewhere near me….

I arrived! Arrived I arrived ….

This performance was about a fragment of Self – Decoding myself in Parts –this work was done with a fragment of self-recorded transmission of self when I visited an art exhibition in London where light-based works were exhibited documenting fragmented self my presence in that particular time. I do it again and again in a different spot as if seeing a different version of myself. Keeping this as a base I introspected on my own identity and existential question and to know ‘true self’ or to question on this fragmented ‘illusion’ or ‘Maya’.
