Rabbit: a journal for nonfiction poetry and Wollongong Art Gallery invite you to the launch of phosphene by Tamryn Bennett (No. 4 in the Rabbit Poets Series) to be launched by Johanna Featherstone, founder of The Red Room Company.
Readings by artists and friends 2pm, Saturday 7 May at Wollongong Art Gallery.
Refreshments available, all welcome.
Bonny Cassidy writes of phosphene: “This passage of poems treads lightly: a careless reader could fail to hear the dread of history and myth, which are embedded in the sensitive sands of Bennett’s phrases. In the twist of a moment she flings the sacred into dust, or a bullet into mystic continuum. The poems’ Spanish translation is similarly entwined—an echo reading, or a haunting.”
The phosphene exhibition is a collaborative installation of image, word, performance and sound. Jacqueline Cavallaro, Tamryn Bennett, Tamara Elkins and Memo Batiz explore physical and spiritual connections with nature.
