Exhibition: Home on the Move

The exhibition is free and open to everyone.
Opening Times: Tuesday – Sunday 11:00 – 20:00; closed on Mondays

For this exhibition we will be showing the seven art films as well as the original poems and their literary translations on posters and in the form of take-away poem-objects. As the exhibition space is part of the library we will not show the sound installation. However, Elise Aru has especially created a large-scale poem-sculpture for our show at the Poetry Library.

Opening and Preview

We will present a short performative reading of the poems and their translations. This will be an opportunity for the poets, artists and translators who took part in the project to meet each other and, of course, to meet you, the public.
