Ritzfrolic: An evening of poetry and discussion inspired by the work of John Chamberlain

Inverleith House and the Scottish Poetry Library were delighted to present an evening of poetry and discussion inspired by the work of John Chamberlain, with poet, Jane Goldman and lecturer, Alistair Rider.

John Chamberlain's use of puns, wordplay and poetic language in the naming of his sculptural works was the focus and inspiration of this event. Sometimes inspired by popular culture, arrived at through shuffling index cards or named after friends and poets, Chamberlain's divergent lexicon of titles and treatment of language offer new understandings towards the artist's process of assemblage and collage in his sculptural work.
