3:AM‘s S.J. Fowler on his exciting new project:
I’d like to announce a new programme of events and publications that I’ll be curating and launching over the next 12 months or so, supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, called the Enemies Project.
The Enemies Project is a multifarious, multidisciplinary but essentially cogent programme of events and exhibitions that provide the grounding to comprehensively explore the notion of collaboration in a strictly contemporary, ‘active’ realm of poetry. When exploring what the medium of poetry can do with film and visual grammar, motion, sculpture, song, composition, music, sonic art, photography, paint, ink, graphic design, illustration, publishing etc… poetry will be presented not just as a monolithic mode with hard edges, but an immensely fluid medium that absorbs and is absorbed into that which gives it context and inspiration.
The Enemies Project will include five publications, an exhibition, over a dozen readings and performances, three workshops, two screenings, over ten art/poetry organisations and well over one hundred poets, artists, musicians and performers, culminating in the publication of my selected collaborations with Penned in the Margins in September 2013.
