Between November 2017 and February 2018 we have invited a number of guests who take interesting and unique approaches to working with archival material, rethinking the contemporary by moving away from dominant narratives in history. We will look at and discuss their work alongside recent artworks made by Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects.
Tara Bergin is a celebrated poet and writer of the collections This is Yarrow and The Tragic Death of Eleanor Marx. Tara will read a selection of poems from her new book and talk informally about her methods of writing and researching. In her capacity as lecturer in Creative Writing at Newcastle University, Tara will also lead a short, open-to-all, workshop surrounding Louis MacNeice’s 1935 poem ‘Snow’ – which features the phrase ‘world is suddener’, which has been employed in various forms as titles for Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects’ collaborative activities.
