The Trembling Grass: Performance

The Trembling Grass is a mixed-media exhibition that highlights conflicts between nature and humankind caused by climate change and the depletion of natural resources. Named after a line from a John Clare poem and displayed in the 150th anniversary year of this poet's death. Details of featured poets in the exhibition are being slowly revealed by means of a Poetry Striptease through posts on the Trembling Grass blog. Please check the blog’s posts to watch the roll call unravel!
