Metanoia

Janell Yeo, Goldsmiths, University of London


Metanoia, Janell Yeo.


Highly influential to Sergei Eisenstein’s brand of Soviet montage theory was his love for Japanese theatre, visual art, poetry, and Sino-Japanese ideograms.1

Inspired by the haiga — image and text combining to form a distinct aesthetic experience — this set of haiku proceeds in company with the audiovisual triptych.2


Beyond the Garden

Shame and guilt ripe for harvest - 

A dove flies away


Plague and pestilence

image and likeness eclipsed -

Season of weeping


East winds rattling

Silken cocoons of penance - 

Yearning for sweet Spring
