Summer Exhibitions: Brighton, New York, London


I will be showing work in Making Tracks, the summer exhibition at The ONCA Gallery, Brighton. Earlier this year I was commissioned by artist Pete Lally to write a poem for his Suitcase Library, a collection of miniature books. My poem 'Obituary' is now available as one of the letterpress-printed library titles, which will be on display at ONCA.

'Obituary' will be shown alongside The Night Hunter - the artists' book designed and executed by Roni Gross and Peter Schell in response to my poem of the same title.



Meanwhile the latest book from Z'roah Press, Tikilluarit (Roni Gross's imaginative setting of my poem 'The Hunter Teaches Me To Speak') will be exhibited at Poet's House in New York as part of Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here, a group show of artists' responses to violence in Iraq. Tikilluarit, a recent finalist in the MCBA Prize, is currently on show at The Cambridge Arts Council, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Finally, How To Say I Love You In Greenlandic: An Arctic Alphabet has been selected for KALEID 2013 London. The chosen books will be on show to the public at The Art Academy on Saturday 20th July 2013. The book will also be part of group exhibitions in Beijing and New Zealand during the autumn and winter: watch this space.

Great , Nancy, I love to see you and your work being so much requested !

I'll be in Brighton from 13 to 17th July; will your fantastic greenlandic-love book be still there, in Onca gallery? I hope so much so...

Mário, I'm delighted to hear you're coming to the UK.

Sadly 'How To Say "I Love You" In Greenlandic' will no longer be in ONCA Gallery then, but I hope you will see the other two Arctic books featuring my writing in their current exhibition.

The book is available to see in London, if your travels take you that far, at Collinge and Clark near the British Museum [http://www.collingeandclark.co.uk]. If you are in London, do let me know - we could meet for coffee if you have time.

Good, I can't wait to have a look at those, and touch them if they let me...

Not going to London, though, I've been there recently, but I'm looking forward to that coffee next year in Oxford !
