The Experimental Processes exhibition opening at Duncairn Cultural Arts Centre tonight, with wonderful print work by Lucy Turner, incorporating poems from the Words for Castle Ward Writing group.
Over the past few months, Lucy has been working with the group, explaining different methods of print-making, and allowing us to understand the process involved. My own poem was two haibun, focusing on the manual labour involved in the repeated dipping and twisting of fabrics. The resulting exhibition is an immersive and mesmerising experience, which compliments the pieces of writing perfectly.
The installation on for the next two weeks, before heading to the Sunburst Gallery in Ards Arts Centre, from 4th to 27th October.
