A short talk on the current exhibition by Rod Mengham (English), in the galleries.

FREE, come along, no booking required

Rod Mengham is the author and editor of books on 19th and 20th century fiction, 20th century poetry, violence and avant garde art, and language and cultural history.

He’s also editor of the Equipage series of poetry pamphlets, and joint editor and translator of Altered State: the New Polish Poetry. His own poems have been published under the titles Unsung: New and Selected Poems (Salt, 2001) and Parleys and Skirmishes (Ars Cameralis, 2007).

In the last 15 years, he has published numerous art critical essays and has also worked as a freelance curator. Most recently he curated Jake and Dinos Chapman’s work in an exhibition called ‘In the Realm of the Senseless’ in Katowice, Poland from November 2010 to January 2011.

Antony Gormley is widely acclaimed for his sculptures, installations and public artworks that investigate the relationship of the human body to space. His work has developed the potential opened up by sculpture since the 1960s through a critical engagement with both his own body and those of others in a way that confronts fundamental questions of where human beings stand in relation to nature and the cosmos. Gormley continually tries to identify the space of art as a place of becoming in which new behaviours, thoughts and feelings can arise.
