Hidden / Courage


Refer to my poem in my last post.

This is artist poet’s Lara Popovic’s visual response.

Our visual work was spookily in tune. We both used card, wool, glass bottles, wire, we have each other trinkets (a ring, a brooch), we referenced sewing, we hid things (in envelopes, landscapes, matchboxes, bottles, scrolls), used the same colours, and used everyday items resulting in a craft-y aesthetic.

In our text, there were also many resonant ideas even though Lara was writing along the lines of everyday courage and violence, with provocations of free writing and the phrase, “what I would whisper to a wriggling hare before setting it free in the fields”, and I wrote to her suggestions of hidden, things I’d buried as a child, love letters, diaries, haibun.
