POETRY WORKSHOP · Poetic Demolition with poet Martha Sprackland

14 Wharf Road, London, London, United Kingdom

Saturday, June 29, 2019 - 10:30 to 13:30

£8/6 (conc) · Booking required

Poet and editor Martha Sprackland will lead a workshop in response to Nazgol Ansarinia’s series Demolishing Buildings, Buying Waste (2017). Ansarinia’s installations explore the ever-changing built environment of a city like Tehran, against a backdrop of tradition, privatisation and capital. During the workshop, participants will firstly construct fresh, new poems, before moving on to inhabit, decorate and deface them. In the third stage, the poems will be demolished, the pieces scattered. The fourth stage completes the cycle; materials are salvaged and repurposed, and new poems are built.

In collaboration with Poetry School.
