FREE EVENT! Presenting: Words from the Edge and other Drosscapes.
25th March 2017; 5pm till 7pm.
Photographer Alan Hockett and Poet Judith Wolton offer a presentation in words and images of work arising from their interest in where they live, its changes, dereliction and re-enchantment. Alan and Judith’s work is inspired by their love of the Essex landscape.
Alan uses his artistic practice to explore the marginal landscapes. These are areas that, with industrial decline, have fallen into disuse and dereliction and are now slowly being reclaimed by the forces of nature.
Judith’s poetry arises out of her contemplation of coastal margins, marshlands and estuaries –using the idea of life on the edge. She was inspired by the mysterious qualities of Alan’s images to write responses to them.
All welcome – Admission Free.
