with poet Simon Pomery
Wednesday 4 May, 6:30pm – 8:30pm
In this workshop we will examine innovative poems, mixing analogue with digital, natural with synthetic, real with hyperreal. In a mutually supportive and interdisciplinary workshop, you will be encouraged to experiment with a sequence of inspiring poetry exercises. Examining to what extent the uncanny photography of David Claerbout, Elger Esser, Julie Monaco and Jörg Sasse can inform our own poetical practices, we will aim to make work that challenges notions of what’s real, normal, and permissible below the surface of a poem. Open to all levels! Hosted in partnership with the drawing shed.
