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 others writing, creating new visual narratives and ultimately initiating an active conversation through multiple art forms.

Poetry, and the process of writing is vital to both artist’s individual practice. Biba uses the act of writing poetry as a form of sketching; a preliminary observation on which every visual artwork she creates is based. She progresses from written language using physical experimentation, whether it is in movement, costume, sound, or painting. Laurie creates fragmented narratives derived from everyday surroundings.

Similar to that of free verse, she works instinctively to what she feels is right and wrong. By illuminating the smallest of moments she creates environments that play and explore the human figure and written words. This exhibition then showcases theprocess between writing, development, and visual arts.

Much like a game of consequences, each artist writes poems for the other to respond to. The viewer is lead around the exhibition with an accompanying zine, featuring selected poems and developmental artwork.
