ABOUT MARIA BARNAS
er language-based work has various forms, such as poems, essays, performances, short films, objects and installations.
The poetry of Maria Barnas forms a collection of explorations into a wide range of subjects, from what one generally fears, to precise children, rejected psychiatrists, and our limited understanding of the universe - showing contemporary life in a stark, unsettling light. Aware of how descriptions form and deform what we see and represent, Barnas offers imagery that is powerful and evocative with a unique, lucid quality.
