Picture a vacuum/ An endless and unmoving blackness/ Peace/ Or the absence, at least/ of terror/ Now,/ in amongst all this space,/ see that speck of light in the furthest corner,/ gold as a pharaoh’s deathbox/ Follow that light with your tired eyes./ It’s been a long day, I know, but look –-/ watch as it flickers/ then roars into fullness/ Fills the whole frame./ Blazing a fire you can’t bear the majesty of/ Here is our Sun!/ And look – see how the planets are dangled around it and held in their intricate dance?/There is our Earth./ Our/Earth
Kae Tempest, Picture a Vacuum, 2016
For Condo London 2024, Union Pacific hosts Sans titre (Paris), and Misako & Rosen (Tokyo), presenting works by Martin Aagaard Hansen, Tanja Nis-Hansen and Kazuyuki Takezaki. Each of these artists work singularly with setting, whether environmental, sociological, or atmospheric. Together their work is an experiential investigation of what it means to communicate our presence on Earth.
