Bury My Songs

14 Feb-10 March 2024

PV 14 Feb 18:00-20:00



@terrace_gallery Lea Bridge Library, London E10

You retreat to the woods, but the silence is booming.
Thick with the mist of age-old spirits
and journeys long trodden before you,

The woods are alive
humming the hymns of not your people.

You don’t have people.

If you bury your hands into the soil, will it know you?
Will you leave tiny traces;
invisible twine that links to the land,
to the roots of the trees
and the threads from the past?

Will you be absorbed into the lore?

If you spread these threads, will they listen?

This group exhibition explores the ways in which dislocation affects our relationship with landscape and its Spirit of Place.
