TWO POETS. ONE ROOM. ONE ARTIST. TWO CONVERSATIONS. FOUR POEMS.
Laura and Manchester-based poet Harry Jelley explored the nature of collaboration and artistic ownership by working with members of the public to create new work. The results of this dynamic project can be seen and heard on the Rothko Room website.
Hello, are you visiting the gallery today? Ah, great. My name’s Harry; I’m doing a poetry project and was hoping you might have a few minutes to collaborate on a poem with me. Really what we’ll be doing is having a conversation about some art, a particular set of artworks in a particular room of the gallery. How does that sound?
