I was honoured to be commissioned by Arts Council Collection to write a poem in response to the ‘Revolt & Revolutions’ exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which showcases work from their archives.

ACC produced a ‘Store to Tour’ film which features excerpts from my commissioned poem, as well as interviews with the curator Helen Pheby and YSP’s Learning Officer Emma Spencer.

You can listen to an audio recording of the poem here, alongside some smaller commissions in response to Steve Johnston’s punk portraits (one of which is below).
