Robert Sheppard and Pete Clarke: Images of Exhibition in Duesseldorf

Am Ende ist es Poesie: a recent exhibition of art relating to poetry at BETONBOX in Duesseldorf (deep in the heart of Europe)

Pete Clarke has collaborated with me (I have collaborated with him) on making a number of prints over the last few years and I posted images from our Edge Hill exhibition here and here. A later work for the Print Bienniel in Krakow may be viewed here and Pete's own website is here. One was a runner-up for the Adrian Henri Prize.

In der Betonbox positionieren sich zeitgenössische Standpunkte mit eine Perspektive auf die Poesie. So stellt sich im Rahmen der Düsseldorfer Poesietage auf dem Dach des alten Hochbunkers die Frage, was ein aktuelles Verständnis von Poesie sein kann. Am Anfang der Veranstaltungsreihe steht die These 'Am Ende ist es Poesie'[..]
From Georg's photos these seem to be three exhibited (or versions of them; remember they are prints)

Vernissage: Samstag, 11.06.2016, 20 Uhr
Performance Abend: Montag, 13.06.2016, 19 Uhr
Finissage: Sonntag, 19.06.2016, 11 - 17 Uhr

Pete Clarke submitted some of the pieces he and I worked on and Georg Gartz, a fine Cologne artist with whom Pete also collaborates, kindly took these photos of the prints shown above in situ:
