I, the Poet. You, the Poet.
‘I, the Poet. You, the Poet’ is an exhibition that aims to encourage a new engagement with poetry - bridging between written, visual and physical languages. Responding to each other’s writing, creating new visual narratives and ultimately initiating an active conversation through multiple art forms.
Our aim is to showcase a body of work consisting of floor paintings, 3d works and moving image that all explore and respond to poetry. In addition to the exhibition, we will printing a limited edition of zines (on sale throughout the show) containing the original poetry and visual responses.
We aim to raise £400 to help fund the exhibition space hire, the zines and marketing of the project which will be taking place in Bristol from the 21st - 27th of August! Biba Cole is a young art student currently studying her 3rd year at Lancaster University and Laurie Cole is working as a freelance artist in Bristol. As this will be our first exhibition together we could do with some friendly support so anything will help, big or small!
Every person that donates to our project will be entered into our Prize Draw. There will be 5 winners with prizes:
1 ✕ Original painting by Laurie Cole
4 ✕ Exhibition poetry zines
We hope you will support us and our goals and thank you for all your kind contributions!
