Jazz Money: Three Pieces of Light | MAF | BEYOND, 2024 | curated by Shelley McSpedden


Three Pieces of Light is a poetic intervention of neon text spread, scattered in a manner to invite audiences on a journey through fragmented lines of poetry. Poetry attunes us to the small spectacle moments of life and teaches us to pay close attention to what can be learnt by observing how light gets in to any given moment.  Three Pieces of Light is comprised of three short lines of text that can be read and reread in different formations to give different meanings. Each line asks us to consider the very small and the very large, across images of dawn, stars, song and ‘small spectacular moments’ the words invite their own interpretation for each visitor to understand in their own manner.
