FIERCE LIGHT / STILL 10 May – 4 June @ East Gallery, Norwich

STILL image 2

From the programme: “Fierce Light brings together outstanding international poets and film-makers to create new work inspired by the one of the deadliest battles in history… Still represents a poetic response to the photographs of the Somme battlefield by Simon Armitage.”

I wanted to enjoy this more but the poetry of Simon Armitage just didn’t transport me to the Battle of the Somme…or anywhere. Interesting aerial and trench photographs that have a powerful emotional charge of their own. Here’s the Guardian review.
