Fifth stop for GSK visitors at the MoNA was the photo booth “With Wings, Will Travel”.
Below is the clay bas relief “With Wings, Will Travel” which inspired this photo booth. It was created by Paulina Constancia while on a creative self-exile in Mexico in 1999.
Paulina also wrote a poem with the same title to accompany the piece:
We age through our voyage.
Some forever grounded
with excess baggage.
But those who are bright
They fly with courage.
Their wings get stronger.
They fly higher.
(With Wings, Will Travel – poem by Paulina Constancia, from her bilingual collection of poetry entitled Brazos Abiertos/Open Arms, Vancouver 2003 )
