DISAPPEAR HERE - WEEK 4 – 3 X POETRY FILMS - ALEX TAYLOR X LEANNE BRIDGEWATER X MAB JONES
18 Artists - 27 poetry films exploring the Modernist Brutalist superstructure of Coventry ringroad!
Each week - we will screen online a set of three poetry films from each of the Disappear Here collaborative pairs over 9 weeks.
Alex Taylor is a self-employed film maker in Coventry.
He runs Mindsweep Media, a film based production company est. 2014.
A keen Coventry resident and pro-active in the community, Leanne Bridgewater is a poet and artist.
Shortlisted for the 2015 Melita Hume poetry award; her first poetry collection 'Confessions of a Cyclist' has recently been published by Knives Forks and Spoons Press. The book is a poetic surveillance into Coventarian's conservations as one passes folk on a bike, to and from work, from one side of Coventry to the other.
Her heart lies in the environment, eco-poetry, language poetry and last but most exciting: visual poetry, sometimes called 'asemic writing', where words and art blend and become one: a vision.
Mab Jones is a "unique talent" (The Times) who has read her work all over the UK, in the US, France, Ireland and Japan. She is winner of the John Tripp Spoken Poetry Audience Award, in the Liverpool Lennon Performance Poetry competition, the Word Factory Neil Gaiman Short Story competition, and the Geoff Stevens Memorial Poetry Prize, amongst others. Her recent collection, 'take your experience and peel it', is published by Indigo Dreams. She teaches creative writing at Cardiff University, writers for the New York Times, and presents a poetry programme on BBC Radio 4 this coming November. She also coordinates International Dylan Thomas Day.
