Inspired by the extensive revisions, suggestions and edits made by Ezra Pound to T.S. Eliot’s manuscript of The Waste Land, this fleeting, collaborative residency in Margate will examine editing as a creative process. Ten professional artists will come together in Margate, the area where Eliot himself found inspiration for the seminal poem. Working in pairs, the artists will take a section of The Waste Land as a starting point, and over two days respond through collaborative practice. Their process and outcomes will be shared with the public at LIMBO on the evening of Saturday 21st April with the artists deciding on the style of this presentation. This will be followed by a hosted open format discussion for the public and invited guests - addressing the responses of the artists to The Waste Land, creative collaboration, and the arts in Margate. Documentation from the residency will be on display at Limbo on Sunday 22nd April.
A collaborative project organised by Claire Orme and Sophie Dixon. Both artists graduated in 2014 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from the University of Kent. In 2014 they exhibited at Turner Contemporary as part of the Platform Graduate Award and in 2015 co-organised an exhibition at HartsLane studio in London. Their practices share an emphasis on research and exploration into histories, narratives and the archive.
This is an independent event organised by members of the public in response to Turner Contemporary's invitation to create an event or activity inspired by The Waste Land, T.S. Eliot's legacy, and Turner Contemporary's exhibition Journeys with 'The Waste Land'.
