Fife Contemporary has partnered with StAnza 2021 to celebrate re-making, re-working and the inordinate amount of re-newing that has gone on in this most challenging time during the pandemic.
Darning and mending in all its forms is celebrated in the online exhibition and I am thrilled that two poems in my pamphlet ‘From the IKEA Back Catalogue’ forthcoming from New Walk Editions are featured alongside the work of Glasgow-based textile artist Deirdre Nelson (see pic below) showing off her fabulous mending and knitting skills in short films. But the best thing is, the exhibition is going to grow and develop with your poems (up to 20 lines) and images on this important theme of making it new. Do take part, and looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme and inspire further creativity. Happy mending!
