Marianne Spurr

13 June – 27 June 2015
Exhibition Opening: Friday 12 June 2015, 6 – 9pm



After scraping the rapture
from our tongues
we watched something living
as it grew under glass;

watched its bones set and fuse
like new ice meeting
the edge of a river.

A fingernail forced
into the dark of a fist
it was seeking
the freedom of air;

the memory of eyelash
in the grass of a paintbrush
or the itch of a heart as its blood runs to dust.

– Keiran Goddard
