Just back from a fantastic week and weekend in Dublin where I presented a paper at TEXT/SOUND/PERFORMANCE on using archive as a de-stabilising form in my work in my poem-writing practice. I was up there with some incredible co-panellists and it amazed me how well they all chimed with each other. It really did.
So thrilled this 9-month in the making project is about to come to fruition in an exhibition running from April 25th to May 30th. Truth Tellers explores how sense was made of the collective trauma of the 2017 Manchester Arena attacks by developing new Art-IR analytical methods that combine creative practices and international relations methods to recover and explore the aesthetic codes of trauma, community and identity.
