A flower left out is a video performance in-between poetry and reality. It was performed and directed at Primrose Hill and it is related to the life and work of the poetess Sylvia Plath. The moving images have been captured at the 3 Calcot Square, where Plath lived with Ted Hughes.

Having moved to London recently and being very connected with Plath’s poetic voice, I wanted to visualize the experience of being where the poetess had been breathing, writing, loving, living.

A flower left out is a lyric that can be found in her poem Sheep in Fog. The images, the flow, the sounds and the narrative of the video derived from the reading of it.

The hills step off into whiteness / People or stars regards me sadly, I disappoint them / The train lives a line of breath / O slow / Horse the colour of rust / Hooves, dolorous bells-All morning, the morning has been blackening / A flower left out / My bones hold a stillness, the far / Fields melt my heart / They threaten to let me through to a heaven / Starless and fatherless, a dark water.
