Niza Guy / Bifurcated presents two text works by Mitchell Syrop. Each one follows the flow of an internal monologue from fatalistic to comic to mundane. Syrop’s idiosyncratic use of language and apparent stream-of-consciousness writing contrast with a rhythmic cadence he invokes through structural formulas and tactical page breaks. Viewed in succession, the two texts set up a dialectical tension between the artist’s public and private personas to produce a hypnotic self-portrait that is at once familiar and subjective.
