Free | Booking advised

Rhona Warwick Paterson will read Elizabeth Bishop’s poem The Moose, published in 1976 (the title of CAMPLE LINE’s autumn exhibition From narrow provinces is taken from the poem’s first line), and her own poem Steel and Other Elastics, 2018. The audience will be invited to make small clay forms with her as the reading progresses.

This opening out of reading to include material experiments responds to the often hidden armatures of poetry as a practice.

Rhona Warwick Paterson studied at The Glasgow School of Art where writing emerged as her practice, particularly in response to sculpture. She has since been commissioned by many established artists to write poems in dialogue with their own creative process and practice. These include: Edmund de Waal, David Ward, Clare Woods, Tessa Lynch and Corin Sworn. She won the Scottish Book Trust award for Poetry in 2018 and is currently working on her first collection.
