Applying Theory: An Archaeopoetic Installation

Exhibition by Erin Kavanagh (Sheffield Hallam University, geomythkavanagh@gmail.com

Applying Theory

to foster

discussion

beyond

research,

is

to build

perceptions

in society.[i]

This exhibition will take the form of a series of short poems/lines of poetry on the floor, walls etcetera  of the conference space. Where they are located near to specific sessions, the lines will be created from the session calls’ own words. Where they are in neutral zones, they will respond to the general themes of both Frontiers and Public Intellectualism along with Chester’s own rich heritage. All pieces will be easy to remove afterwards, emphasising the temporality inherent within breaking new ground through thought, art and excavation.
