6 - 8pm, Wednesday 8th Dec
Guest Editions present Wanda Orme - Volcano Songs
“When I moved to Naples, for the first time I lived in a city dominated by two very powerful natural features, the sea and the volcano. This experience allowed me to learn what it is to orientate yourself in relation to something that is non-human and unconstructed.” Wanda Orme
This December, multidisciplinary visual artist, photographer, and writer Wanda Orme will release a new book of poetry and photography offering an emotive exploration of the ineffable energy of volcanos. Capturing the sensuality and the power of these unique landscapes, informed by Orme’s background in both anthropology and psychology, this intelligent, gentle, and honest book was created on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and the volcanic islands of Alicudi and Pantelleria, in the south of Italy.
“Pressure points, radical upheavals, giving way to both destruction and creation. Volcanos are apertures, where one world’s truth spills into another.” Wanda Orme
