Title:

I am a Poet

Author: Mithu Sen
Description:

“In her new work I Am a Poet 2013, Mithu Sen reclaims her ownership of language by levelling the playing field in a world dominated by the English language. Reading from a book of asemic text, Sen makes public performances which invite visitors to record their own readings from the text, throwing into focus the void between utterance and meaning. An acclaimed poet in her native language of Bengali, Sen has experienced a sense of disconnection with language since relocating to the largely Anglophone city of Delhi. In this work she invites us to share in a language that mutually excludes and therefore includes us all.” – Khoj International Artist’s Association Press Release
