The event also marks the launch of Uneasy Pieces, the latest poetry pamphlet from writer and book artist Nancy Campbell. Uneasy Pieces exists as a score composed in uncanny spaces and around silence. The sequence moves across borders and the centuries, documenting bodies asleep and wakeful, damaged and desired. Here are fugitive auroras and black holes, as well as miniscule misprints and ink blots, improvised intermissions and equivocal acts of translation.
Nancy Campbell is the author of the non-fiction titles Thunderstone, The Library of Ice and Fifty Words for Snow, the poetry collection Disko Bay, and artist books and projects The Polar Tombola and How to say ‘I Love You’ in Greenlandic. She is a former UK Canal Laureate and has undertaken a number of residencies with research institutions in Europe and the Arctic; in 2020 she received the Ness Award for environmental writing from the Royal Geographical Society.
Sylee Gore is an Indian-American poet, writer, and interdisciplinary artist who works with image and text. She is currently based between Oxford and Berlin. Her artist’s book, Even Still, is a study of silence and light.
