Darkness Visible | 17-Nov-17 to 25-Mar-18

Enter this participatory installation by artist Sam Winston, exploring perception and spoken word.

After spending a number of weeks in his studio, living and drawing in complete darkness, Sam Winston has created an immersive exhibition which allows you to experience the creative impact of darkness. You can enter a newly commissioned dark room which is completely covered in text that has been written by the artist during the creation of the installation.

In addition, a number of the UK's leading poets have been commissioned to spend time in the dark and respond poetically to the experience. These poets include Emily Berry, Kayo Chingonyi and George Szirtes, whose new poems are available to read and hear as part of the exhibition. These text works, including the artist's text maps, create a written document of the often overlooked world beyond the daylight. Darkness Visible invites you to engage with what happens beyond the visible and to place the darkness at the centre of your perception.
