Artist Phoebe Boswell has created a powerful exhibition at Autograph - an emotive interrogation of trauma, healing and the poetics of endurance. Using her art-making to explore a landscape of grief, she invites us to bear witness to a journey of recovery and possible renewal.
In an informal gathering and sharing circle, Boswell will be joined by musician Bumi Thomas, poet Raymond Antrobus, storyteller Buitumelo and the audience to all share and respond to the themes explored in the show.
Boswell will begin the evening with an introduction to her exhibition The Space Between Things. This will be followed by music and poetry inspired by the works on display, and an open, inclusive discussion where you are invited to speak, breathe, and participate.
“Take me to the lighthouse / There is peace there / In the space between things / Take me to the lighthouse / There is peace there in the space between things / Take me to the lighthouse / I can rage there / In the space between things”
- Phoebe Boswell
