Book Launch: Traci Kelly & Joanne Lee "Seeing / Chewing"
A celebratory launch of two new publications in the Bonington Atrium, featuring a series of short readings in the Bonington Lecture Theatre, as well as a live vocal performance.
- From: Wednesday 5 February 2014, 3.30 pm
- To: Wednesday 5 February 2014, 5 pm
- Location: Bonington building, Nottingham Trent University, City Campus, Shakespeare Street, Nottingham, NG1 5LS
Please join us for a celebratory launch of two new publications:
Traci Kelly's 'Seers-in-Residence', with contributions from Emma Cocker, Simon Cross, Ben Judd and Joanne Lee (a Nottingham Trent University / Bonington Gallery publication)
'This publication emerges from an invitation for four researchers to spend time as Seers-in-Residence with Traci Kelly's monoprint installation 'Feeling It For You (Perspective)', which was part of From Where I Stand I Can See You in January 2013. The resulting book documents the creative and critical ideas explored by participants, and reflects upon the possibilities for this innovative model for research.'

Joanne Lee's 'Gumming up the Works', Issue #3 from the Pam Flett Press independent serial
'This third issue fantasizes about luminous constellations of dropped chewing gum on the street, confronts a horrible compulsion to seek out the hard stuff glued under desks or in the recesses of train carriages, before finding itself fixated upon various species of lumps, heaps and piles; ultimately the writing explores creative work as a sort of digestion or composting, and suggests we have quite a lot to learn from worms’

There will be drinks and nibbles in the Atrium, followed by a live vocal performance by Denise Boyd as we relocate to Bonington Lecture Theatre for introductions to the publications, and a series of short readings.

As we are based in the city centre of Nottingham we would advise visitors to this exhibition to use the park and ride services, or to catch the tram to the Nottingham Trent University stop. There is no visitor car parking available at the University.
