Small zine

This new zine/artist book draws together a juxtaposition of figures and abstract shapes under the narrative title ‘The Burden of the Small’. The figure in silhouette explores human scale within certain ‘frames’, while abstract small objects supporting large overbearing blocks allude to the oppressive nature of ‘regime’ states (whether capitalist, communist or fascist). The collages are in some ways suggestive of inequalities in class strata and the precarious balance of society as a whole.

A4 single sheet folded to A6 size booklet with additional insert – printed original paper/digital collage.

Submissions invited for ‘Poetry Is’

‘Poetry Is’ is a project undertaken in conjunction with the Deal Festival of Music and the Arts 2015.
The essence of this project is not just poetry as a discipline,
but poetry as a life-view: expressed artistically.
The whole world talks poetry; it is only we who, with elaborate ingenuity
manage to talk prose.
(G.K. Chesterton)

The Book
The heart of the project is a unique book, 12” Square, entitled POETRY IS
to be displayed on a lectern at the centre of an exhibition.
Each double page spread will be the unique work of an artist, writer, poet or a collaboration.
There will be no commercial aspect to the Poetry Is Book.
Its existence is to show that monetary value is not the only criteria for creative expression.
There are no fees for inclusion nor fees paid.
The book will not be sold, but given to an appropriate body, with the
proviso that, if it changes hands, it will again be given not sold.
For any questions please email christiandada@hotmail.co.uk
