Marika Vandekraats: (Un)turned

In 1953, they dug the first line from the interior, across the rockies to the pacific. 

They cut into the soils and buried the vein that pulses still today.

carving through mountain ridge, diving deep under lakes, the vein trailed on

pulsing, breathing, bleeding

The turning of the soils is not a cycle 

The turning of the soils is not a circle

The turning of the soils is a line. 

A line that goes east to west, north to south

The turning of the soils is a line which crossed lines

The turning of the soils is a line too far. 

 

Phanuel AntwiMomtaza Mehri & Ana Teixeira Pinto will respond to the question How deep are you digging?

 

(Un)turned will be presented at Comando, Centrale Fies, Dro, Italy on Monday July 11.
