Antony Gormley, POLYHEDRA SCRATCH, 2018-2019, Bolt, 2018

 

 

Arms in the air
as though in triumph
after struggle.

 

Whatever kind of struggle
that may be,
I do not know,
I do not care!

 

Although it seems like triumph;
still you are tied up
by God knows what
conventions
rules
opinions
...

 

Never mind,
they tie you up
whatever what,
and almost keep you
still, immobilized,
impossible to move
beyond what
rules,
opinions,
conventions
will allow for you!

 

My question;
are you happy
with this life?

 

Or should I,
full of empathy,
apply the scissors in my hand?
