Venue, Timing and Cost
The Old Fire Station Gallery hosts a selection of work from Demons Land: A Poem Come True.
This multimedia art installation tells the story of an island, deep underneath the known world, in which a poem comes uncannily, horribly true.
It features large-scale history paintings, strange denatured sculptures, and mesmeric soundscapes. The heart of the exhibition is a film, which will be screened on 17 April, 8 May and 18 May.
Demons Land is based on Edmund Spenser’s The Faerie Queene, a violent, beautiful, hallucinogenic work written in the service of religious fundamentalism and cultural genocide. A poem of idealism, temptation, ravishing gorgeousness; a poem of coercion, prevention, and rape.
Tuesday 17 April – Join us to celebrate the opening of the exhibition, 6 – 8pm
Demons Land: film screening
Tuesday 17 April, Tuesday 8 May, Thursday 17 May, 7.30pm
An art film like no other. There are no digital tricks, no special effects, no state of the art animation. Instead, it is one woman’s attempt to build a world from the materials at her disposal – duvets, tights, paint, and her own arts of disguise and transformation – and in this way to tell the secret history of her land. £6/£5.
