Wordtent installation







Wordtent : an outreach project with students from Brampton Primary School now installed in the Berwick Road Gallery, Welling.

This tent has been on a journey. For the past two months travelling back and forth from Welling to Brampton Primary Academy. The tent has been a creative shelter in which our two schools have collaborated through making.

We play with words to produce concrete poetry exploring the link between the shapes of words and their meaning. Concrete poetry – sometimes also called ‘visual poetry’ – is poetry which visual appearance matches the topic of the poem. The words form shapes which illustrate the poem’s subject as a picture as well as through their literal meaning.

During the exhibition we encourage you to join in our play. Using acetate letters to project your own words into the space.
