Poetry & Visual Art: Cornelia Parker

Poetry & Visual Art: Cornelia Parker

Be inspired by Cornelia Parker on the gallery tour, then come together in part 2 to workshop your new poems.

The artist Cornelia Parker has said of her work: ‘I like the idea of plucking something out of its downward spiral and arresting its importance’, which could also describe the activity of poetry.  

In this two-day workshop, we will spend a day exploring the Cornelia Parker retrospective at Tate Britain, considering her themes of process and transformation, suspension of time and reshaping of space, before meeting up in part 2 to workshop the poems that result from our investigations and discussions. 

A two-day workshop running 10.30am – 4.30pm (BST) on Saturday 8 October (Tate Britain Gallery Day) and 15 October (Workshop Day in Somerset House, WC2R 1LA).
