Poetry Object 2017 Digital Exhibition
wrapped in bandages like half-lived dreams
knuckles sinewed with frostbite
ready to begin the blood-sport basse danse
~ from 'Canvas' by Peter Ramm, Winning Teacher
In partnership with Val Morgan, Red Room Poetry will screen Poetry Object 2017 winning poems in selected cinemas across Australia from 21 December 2017 - 10 January 2018.
Led by Oscar-shortlisted animator Robertino Zambrano, KAPWA Studioworks will transform the winning poems into compelling and playful animations. Through our project Poetic Moments, these poetic excerpts will beam into cinemas across the country.
As a special bonus feature, the animation will also grace the digital kiosk screens of the National Museum of Australia.
