GROUP 8 - EXHIBITION LAUNCH
The artist collective I'm a member of here in Ballinasloe launches its 2012 exhibition tomorrow night, March 10th, at 7pm, in Hayden's Hotel in the town. There will be wine, poetry, prose, song and art. Everyone is welcome! The exhibition runs until March 18th, daily from 11am to 6pm.
I collaborated with fellow member Úna Spain to creat a video poem. I'll pop it up onto YouTube shortly and link to here. The theme of our exhibition is 'Made in Ballinasloe' and my work features poems about Juno, my daughter, who was made in Ballinasloe. Úna shot stills and video to match the poems and I read the poems over the images; think rag trees, peacocks and pomegranates :)
