inscriptions and rants
Bridget Penney and Ulli Freer read to a good crowd at the Lamb last night. Penney began with a piece of photographically illustrated psychogeography working around graffiti and inscriptions on an old church site. Her second bracket was a kind of masque edited cinematically. Ulli Freer was hard to photograph, shifting ground like a prizefighter as he read from a long work with sections each titled ‘recovery’. His poems are dense but he delivers them with a momentum that carries the listener along.
