AN ASSEMBLANCE OF JUDICIOUS HERETICS
... 2015: The Road Not Taken
The anthology-catalogue is available to order now from Wordsmithery, with all the writing in full and images of the artworks.
AN ASSEMBLANCE OF JUDICIOUS HERETICS: 'Two roads diverged in a yellow wood / And sorry I could not travel both.'
In 2014 our collaborative literary and visual art exhibition – AN ASSEMBLANCE OF JUDICIOUS HERETICS was part of Rochester Literature Festival, where our exhibition was shown at Rochester Library from 26 September to 25 October, and we also hosted an evening of readings from the project.
The project was so popular with visitors that we did it again in 2015, and collaborated with a host of artists and writers.
The project works as follows: we anonymously give written texts to a range of artists – and they will interpret the text in whatever medium they chose. The writing and pictures will be displayed as part of the exhibition. For 2015 the topic was inspired by ‘The Road not Taken’ by Robert Frost.
32 writers wrote texts and were interpreted by 35 artists.
The exhibition was shown at Rochester Library through September 2015, with a launch event, where the writing/art collaborations were revealed on Thursday 3 September 2015.
