|Kato Catling's Sushi Poem|
Today Kato Catling has snuggled in beside me on my Sunday morning lie-in. His own work often fuses both art and poetry and he has been kind enough to offer us this five liner for the exhibition. I got to know the work of Catling at the recent Art:Language:Location exhibition, which is Cambridge's cutting edge festival of wordplay in public spaces. http://artlanguagelocation.wordpress.com/.
"...ultimately the art needs to leave the studio to participate in society. I only want a slight permanence to the objects. They are insignificant things anyway. I recycle commercial packaging in the work because it is expedient and right for the concept and not from any environmental concern although it is one possible interpretation."
If you didn't know already our model sushi are made of recycled materials too (card, carpet and plastic bags) and we are urging people to take these sushi home. Here is Kato Catling's poem.
NO NEED TO BE WITH ME NOTHING TO DO EXCEPT TO BE YOU ACCEPTING ME BESIDE YOU
We have printed his poem onto this model sushi and will be exhibiting it at the Village Hall Trust Gallery from the 19th-24th March 2014. If you would like to join us, please send us a haiku or poem (less than 80 characters) to me Alban at email@example.com or tweet @albanart
