On the destructive power of words | Björnsdóttir | Czarnecki

Meeting with Sigríður Hagalín Björnsdóttir
Host: Przemysław Czarnecki

Writing is one of humankind’s greatest inventions.In the early days it was used purely to classify and record transactions, but over time it became a universal means of communication.For the Sigríður Hagalín Björnsdóttir’s heroine, the written word represents anxiety.She sees it as the building blocks of a prison isolating her from others and from nature.Writing limits her senses, makes the world invisible and drains her of energy.Can she escape from this prison?What lies beyond writing, beyond the boundaries of words?
