This Happend Yet Continues To 

June 25th 2022 @ Prague, Czech Republic


On June 25th 2022 Tyko Say walked through Prague and its metro ways with a CRT TV, a battery pack, a wooden pedastool, and a marquee text that read “THIS HAPPENED YET IT IS HAPPENING”. 

He writes,
“The idea for the performance and installation was to promote language—and thus poetry—as a procedural entity, rather than a static form. The text, when placed in separate spaces, assumed different meanings. The language happened, though the formation of its meaning is continuous--dependent on both the reader and context to provide meaning. While the pragmatics of language isn’t a new idea, in the contemporary anglophone poetry communities it seems to be.”


Starting from Národní třída, the action lasted nearly three hours and ended with a reading at the Jiří z Poděbrad square. See the pamphelt below which was given out to attendees at the square.  








/ OBJECT:PARADISE IS THE INDUCTIVE SEDUCTION OF THE OBJECTIVE MOMENT / USE THE LANGUAGE THAT THE PERFORMER AND AUDIENCE CREATE IN THAT MOMENT / CONTEXT IS COTEXT / EVERYTHING IS PART OF THE PERFORMANCE / THE AUDIENCE IS THE POET / DETHRONE, THEN DEMOTE THE POET WHO CAME KNOWING / ELIMINATE THE EGO / DEPLATFORM THE STAGE / ORCHESTRATE THE CHAOS / LANGUAGE EXISTS ONLY IN A SINGLE MOMENT, THAT MOMENT /  DOWN WITH DENOTATION /  CELEBRATE THE PARTY THAT LANGUAGE IS / THE BEST WORDS IN THE BEST ORDER DOES NOT EXIST / LET ALL PLANS GO WRONG / DEMONETIZE LANGUAGE / EMBRACE MISCOMMUNICATION /  PROMOTE THE CONTEXT FOR THE SUBJECTIVE WORLD TO BE EXPERIENCED IN THE OBJECTIVE MOMENT
