Natalie Czech
A poem by repetition by Robert Creeley #3, 2013

In her series, Poems by Repetition, Natalie Czech relies on the stylistic tool of repetition, which for her implies echo, music, rhythm and beat. In doing so, she focusses on objects from the field of music, which she photographs for her works. The genre of pop music is of particular interest to Czech because various forms of repetition – such as the repetition of text in the refrain, for example – crop up in it. The motif displays an ‘All Over Pattern’ of writing and color, which is created by the close-up of the disc inlays of Prince “Purple Rain”. Through the close-up one can also simultaneously see the pattern of the original print pattern of the original album cover. Both parts of the diptych show extracts of the songs “When Doves Cry” and “Baby I’m A Star” and Natalie Czech allows the ‘superfluous’ words of these to become the original background pattern, i.e. the ‘purple rain’ by coloring them the same color. This is an extremely painstaking task. This visual and verbal ‘flow’ also becomes thematic in the visualized poem by the American author Creeley: “Out one / ear and / in the / other ear / and out / without it.”
