From this special event, the Writers' Centre Kingston programme shifts from themed discussion events to four innovative evenings bringing together multiple speakers and performers. Poem Brut is an exploration of artistic creative writing - poetry and colour, handwriting, composition, abstraction, scribbling, illustration - a project that aims to engage and energise poets, writers, artists, readers and listeners. Poem Brut affirms the possibilities of the page, the pen, the pencil for the poet in a computer age - generating over a dozen events, multiple exhibitions, workshops, conferences and publications.
Sarah Dawson - I have purchased a canvas on a wooden frame, approx 1m by 75cm. I have ripped all of the canvas off the frame, and re-covered it in white tissue paper. I will walk onto the stage with the canvas, prop it on a chair in front of me, and stand behind it so the canvas is between me and the audience. When I draw on the back of the tissue paper with a marker pen, it bleeds through and can be read by the audience. I am imagining it as a crude visualisation of a seance. so, on the canvas, I am establishing self/other life/afterlife and so on. Essentially, writing to ghosts.
