An artist book of poetry in English and Russian focusing on forms of language – visual and sonic, is an organic continuation of Evgenia’s art practice. The book is an invitation to the audience to explore how written word as symbol of time, with its density and transparency, reflects its perception in occupying the page and sound space of the poems.

The evening will include a series of performances evoking poems from the book through sound poetry and a short talk by the artist. Evgenia will transform King’s College Chapel through and exhibition of her graphic scores in the form of drawings, which inspire her performances. The audience will be also invited to collaborate in re-creating a poem together filling the space of the Chapel with voices.
