A Single Line of Poetry
The Winchester Gallery
Winchester School of Art
Winchester SO23 8DL
What would a single line of poetry look like if it became a physical object? It would, of course, depend on the line.
In the two weeks before the poetry festival, the Fine Art students of Winchester School of Art will be studying poems by all of the poets appearing in the festival. From this material, they will select just one line to serve as the starting point for a large-scale collective artwork, which they will construct in the sculpture studio. The department has made a habit of beginning its academic year in this way, with some 150 students collaborating on a single artwork. The results are unpredictable but always impressive.
There will be a special reception for viewing the project in the Winchester Gallery at Winchester School of Art, where the drawings made in the development of the artwork will be on show, and in the Sculpture Studio (on the same site) for the finished object.
