Running from November 7th to December 1st 2013, at the Hardy Tree gallery in Kings Cross (http://hardytreegallery.com/), the Enemies project is very proud to present an exhibition of the work of Erkembode, 'not just another saint', which evidences the artworks of one of London's most dynamic modernist artists. His extensive engagement with poets and poetry, and his consistent collaborative practise, has made him a fundamental part of the Enemies project. Amongst the many pieces that will be exhibited, there will be a wall of visual translations, responses & collaborations with poets such as David Berridge and Daniele Pantano, amongst others, that will be constantly changing over the near month the exhibition takes place.
