Sława Harasymowicz: The Spring to Come, The Poetry Library, Royal Festival Hall, 2016
The Spring to Come unravels the story of a semi-hypothetical figure, an aspiring poet, and his attempts to deal with the reality of war through imagination and language. Using a range of media and translation tools to interpret and respond to private and public archival materials and referencing The Poetry Library collection, Harasymowicz creates a site-specific installation that interrogates the tensions between images and words in invoking memory and challenging historical amnesia.
The exhibition is the final chapter of a three-part multidisciplinary project that has included two other solo exhibitions by Harasymowicz at Centrala Gallery, Birmingham and narrative projects, London, curated by Dominik Czechowski, supported by Arts Council England.
The Spring to Come is part of the London Literature Festival.
Exhibition runs from 5 October 2016 – 10 January 2017
