COLOUR & POETRY: A SYMPOSIUM IV. One of my favorite annual interdisciplinary happenings. A three-day event held by the Slade in celebration of International Colour Day, World Poetry Day and World Pigment Day. I am talking on March 21 @ 16.00 Blue. I mean green. Blue, green. The title is borrowed from a poem by Richard Price. Considering the spectrum of hues that the word blue covers, considering the immense range of connotations that it implies -- why are we not perpetually perplexed and confused whenever we hear the word blue? Using Relevance theory I look at ambiguities that colour terms hold and the effects that they evoke -- especially in language arts, which thrive on vagueness and indeterminacy. Free. Online. Booking via Eventbrite. March 21, 2022.
SMALL PUBLISHERS FAIR. Digital programme from November 12, 2021 to December 17, 2021. Books available for purchase.
BLESS/BLAST @ Octagon Gallery, UCL as part of celebratory events for 150th aniversary of the Slade. A three dimensional visual poetry display (on show until August, 2022) and an immaterial online writing/publishing project are inspired by Wyndham Lewis’s first edition of the Blast magazine; it contained the Vorticist manifesto with a list of things, people and ideas which were, according to Lewis, either ‘bless’ or ‘blast’. What is the threshold between "blast" and "bless"? Marked by the difference in only two letters, the words elicit a polarised judgment, obscuring an opaque network of connections and overlaps between the concepts. The online BLESS/BLAST might be supplemented sporadically by a new publicationbefore August, 2022. Exhibition opening on November 22, 2021.
