Katherine Jones | 03-Aug-11 to 28-Aug-11

Katherine Jones' collagraph prints focus on Britain's coastal erosion and are exhibited alongside an artist's book made in collaboration with the award winning poet Retta Bowen. A continuum of Jones' ghostlike, mid-air motifs, the artist's book as a suspended mobile, challenges conventional form through its kinetic structure and references Lynn Chadwick's Fisheater, commissioned for the Festival of Britain in 1951.

A dedicated season of artists' books curated by KALEID editions. Twelve internationally acclaimed artists engage with the Saison Poetry Library's collection in a diverse programme of exhibitions, interventions, residencies and participatory events.

Prompted by the Festival of Britain celebrations, contemporary artists are given a rare opportunity to draw upon Southbank Centre's archives and re-consider British identity sixty years on.

KALEID editions represents 'artists who do books', advocating public library collections and an interdisciplinary approach to artists' books. Visit the Saison Poetry Library on the fifth level of the Royal Festival Hall to discover the most comprehensive and accessible collection of poetry from 1912 in Britain.
