The Stellar Blanket (2015)

The Stellar blanket is an assemblage/quilt made of mirror stencils from the project Writing Wounds to heal. It is used in the performances of The wind escorts the sky and The Poeticians but is also a one-to-one performance.  Operating like a letter chart where the letters are unordered, the heave quilt gives a surprising comfort and intimacy when covering the two bodies in this one-to-one performance. In a blackened space Pontus uses his phone to lit the quilt from above, casting letter projections in the ceiling. An imagined starlit sky becomes the score for this instant poetry reading.
