Staff and students from UCA Canterbury will be using the artist book as a means of exploring themes located within The Waste Land, the poem by T.S. Eliot written partly in Margate. The project is an artwork and mobile bookcase in one, populated with books, zines, pamphlets to sculptural objects.
Part of the CRATE spring 2018 program running alongside Journeys with 'The Waste Land’at Turner Contemporary.
A free public program of events will be open to all and free to attend.
CRATE will become a curatorial space where books made during the research period for ‘Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ will be put into context with other experimental works being created by the staff and students in response to the poem and will link with events to be hosted at UCA Canterbury (details to follow). This series of workshops at CRATE during the four-week period from 3 February – 4 March 2018 will show ways of experimenting using artist book making, as a means of interpreting the poem.
