Casey Spooner reads Pablo Neruda's XVII (I do not love you…)
Poetry x and Tea
In this unique video series produced and created by PHI, artists freely explore the interplay between rhymes and sounds, sharing a quiet moment of introspection with us.
Casey Spooner is both half of the electroclash duo Fischerspooner and a visual artist who became the face of gay culture. Newly Parisian, he advocates a nude philosophy (“I want muscles made of joy,” he says), but demonstrates a passion for mind-blowing fashion on his wildly couture Instagram thread. He had to wait nine years for the release of his third album, produced by Michael Stipe, formerly of R.E.M. Troubled by love, a problematic word that he has long detested, and jumping with both feet into contradiction, Spooner recites a sonnet about love by the great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.
"I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers"
