ART ON POETRY

SEASON OF ARTISTS’ BOOKS CURATED BY KALEID EDITIONS

KALEID editions represents ‘artists who do books’, advocating public library collections and an interdisciplinary approach to artists’ books.

KATHERINE JONES

wORKS ON PAPER

Wednesday 3 August – Sunday 28 August

Katherine Jones’ collagraph prints focus on Britain’s coastal erosion and are exhibited alongside an artist’s book made in collaboration with the award winning poet Retta Bowen. A continuum of Jones’ ghostlike, mid-air motifs, the artist’s book as a suspended mobile, challenges conventional form through its kinetic structure and references Lynn Chadwick’s Fisheater, commissioned for the Festival of Britain in 1951.

GoTO10

DIGITAL MEDIA

Wednesday 3 August – Sunday 28 August

GOTO10 exploits Wi-fi signals and combines them with the library’s

database to create original digital verse. With a simple hack to a wireless router, the international digital arts collective GOTO10 present the unsuspecting passer-by with anything from a playful cut and paste collage to creative propaganda. Drawing comparisons with SMS and Twitter poetry such as ‘twaiku’, messages are transmitted from the library, feeding poetry to public spaces around the Southbank Centre.

MEGHANA BISINEER

TIME LAPSE ANIMATION

Bisineer’s residency culminates as a  3 minute animation set against the Southbank Centre’s cityscape and artist’s book.
