Travel, Identity & Home – a Literary Night Inspired by Art
7th November 2014
6pm – 7.30pm
This November, renowned international sculptor Carol Peace invites you into her studio for an intimate evening of poetry and prose, co-curated by writer Judy Darley.
Seven writers will share literary works inspired by Carol’s work, and by the themes Travel, Identity and Home. The event will explore the way different creative mediums can influence and benefit from one another.
The night will offer the chance to meet Carol, hear the writers and performers, and have a glass of wine amongst beautiful works of art.
”For me this dialogue between words and sculpture started many years ago with a poet’s visit to my open studio. John Terry wrote a few poems including ‘Listen’ that made me look again – the figure had a new story, a new life,” she says. “Sculpture can be like this. Maybe it’s just a suggestion to a thought, a step, a bridge to another story, I have my ideas but the message is often reformed through other eyes.”
With just 30 tickets available, this is a golden opportunity to see what can happen when art and words come together.
Featuring the words of Judy Darley, Joanna Butler, Paul Deaton, Helen Moore, Maithreyi Nandakumar, Pete Sutton, John Terry, it promises to be a thought-provoking and uplifting evening.
