Prompt: Venus is Venus is Venus
In the 1913 poem Sacred Emily, Gertrude Stein wrote the line “Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose”. This sentence is often interpreted as meaning “things are what they are”. But are they really? From ancient mythology right through to contemporary culture, the word “Venus” has evoked different interpretations: beauty, desire, fertility, deity, and bright interstellar objects.
For this experiment, our artists will transform the iconic Dupont Underground as they derive their own meaning from the prompt.
