Exhibition: Poetry School at Grey Noise
Poetry School at Grey Noise, a teaching, publishing, performance and archival exhibition asks one fundamental question to visitors: how does poetry come to be and what does it do?
This exhibition's pieces take inspiration from artist Jill Magi's book of poetry titled Speech, a 5-year endeavour that explores how poetry, art and life are recursive. While writing Speech, Magi learned embroidery, a form that played into her understanding of poetry, and created paintings of items accumulated from the world around her. These paintings and embroidery are on display at the gallery, which visitors can explore before utilising the space to read, listen and talk about poetry.
