I've been making preparations today for the event next month with Poetry Film Live. Chatting with Rosie Garland and Helen Dewbery was lovely and we've recorded Rosie performing one of the special poems from the 'Book of the Film' of Because Goddess is Never Enough. It was brilliant - not least because that's the first time I've seen Rosie perform that particular poem. I will have to make it into a film one day. You'll have to join us on Thursday 8th June at 7.30pm to find out which poem, and to watch the reading.
Launching a collaboration with Roma Tearne - an artist's book edition in Venice, in association with Kanz Architetti - alongside an exhibition of paintings by Roma on 12 & 13 May 2023.
Written by Roma Tearne with typographic design and artist's book edition created by me. See more about the book at Peculiarity Press.
Beyond proud that the first of a new mini-series of films has gone up on the Faber & Faber YouTube channel to tie-in with Toby Martinez de las Rivas' new book of poetry 'Floodmeadow' that is published today.
Made in collaboration with Toby and sound artist Neda Milenova Mirova. And created from an original glass plate photograph by Eric Guy Archive at the Museum of English Rural Life.
More from this series to come. Three films are complete with two more in progress.
