Description

Scores For Performance Poetry is an exploration of visual poetic representations of the body by trans artist Noah LeBien. The images from “urethras” and “anuses” are taken from performances they did in which the visual effects on my body were generated by my voice as she read their poems. The images were taken by a camera that was triggered by my voice. Similarly, the images from “navels,” “skirts” and “lines” are visual representations of the soundwaves of their voice. Instead we should call them “waves” instead of “lines” of poetry if poetry is essentially an auditory art form. The act of “reading“ these scores is meant to literally create a rift in authority; the “text” is not a rigid demarcation of an authoritative patriarchal self, it is an instrument that creates a real opening.
