23 Gino Ballantyne – The Waste Land – A Collapsing World: Exhibition – Friday 24 to Sunday 26 June, The Vinson


The Waste Land – A Collapsing World: Exhibition

This year celebrates the centenary of first publication of TS Eliot’s landmark poem The Waste Land. To mark the occasion artist Gino Ballantyne is producing a one-of-a-kind illustrated manuscript to be unveiled at the Festival on Saturday 24 June. A powerful visual response to Eliot’s poem, Gino explores a collapsing world where our habits and notions of identity, reality and truth symbolise our disconnect with civilisation, the natural world and human consciousness.

Throughout the Festival there will be a special interactive installation in the Vinson. Gino invites you to add your responses and will be on hand to talk about his work.
