A note on : Yellow Book Exhibition at Westminster Library


Happy to be part of this group exhibition at Westminster Library just literally on Leicester sq amazingly, behind the National Gallery. It’s an amazing space and holds a grand collection, and thanks to curators Astra Papachristodoulou and Lisa Kiew, I am one of around ten poet-artists who have been asked to respond to the Yellow Book.

The Yellow Book https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Yellow_Book was a British quarterly literary periodical that was published in London from 1894 to 1897

My work is about Aubrey Beardsley writing about Salome whacking off a unicorn and Joris Karl Huysmans fake occult sexyness in one of my favourite of his books La Bas. It’s a poem brut piece, writing in indian ink with poundland yellow paint.

Very good to be along friends and peers like Imogen Reid, Karen Sandhu, Luke Thompson et al. Check it out, it runs
