“when i see you, all i see is a complete poem.”
what does that even mean?
“well for me, you’re art. but no, not a painting. that’s way too obvious.
not a sketch either - god took much, much longer to create you than just a sketch.
a piece of writing… yes that’s what you are. but not prose. you’re harder to decipher than a structured paragraph with proper sentences.
you’re a poem. a long one. a short one. a deep one, a simple one. every single person who comes across you feels differently about you. you create tears. you evoke emotions. you make them feel. but above all, you never truly reveal what you really are. and the ones who truly understand your beauty will need to take years dissecting you. analysing you. loving you.
and although you’re always growing, always evolving, always changing - to me, you will always be complete.”
- the complete poem, astrid suu
inspired by an installation in the ngv triennial 2018.
