There’s just a few days left for the Southwark Park Galleries to see A fine Day for Seeing, an exhibition of works by ten artists accompanied by ten poems, curated by Paul Carey-Kent and Tamar Yoseloff. I’ve been twice over the summer, my first outings to London in over a year (apart from a work meeting). Seeing art in real life, in gloroius technicolour and in 3D and listening to the poems via QR codes in the gallery felt like being allowed back in the sweet shop after a period of abstinence. I am still working through lots of notes and rough drafts following a workshop at the end of July. The starting point for the exhibition was chosing the ten poets who were then invited to suggest artists they wanted to work with or were paired with suitable artists. If you can’t get to the gallery you can listen to the poems here
I found mself mesmerised by Hew Locke’s Wreck and Roy McFarlane’s The Wreck and the shadows.
