The final Act of Fenris Wolf and Ragnar Thorfinn opens on Saturday 26th October at WASPS Studios, Stromness at 6pm (free public event, all welcome) and will be open 10-5 on Sunday 27th, Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th (also free & all welcome).
Continuing with FW&RT’s characteristic diversity, Act 3 is taking the form of a more conventional art exhibition where McKenzie and O’Dempsey will be showcasing primarily visual work which they’ve been working on during their Orcadian residency.
On September 24th, James Alexander McKenzie and Daniel O’Dempsey lead an experimental poetry workshop for Piergroup at the Pier Arts Centre.
Using a rendition of the literary collaging method ‘the cut-up technique’ inspired by William Burroughs and David Bowie and the works of a range of Scottish poets, the workshop generated new poems by cutting and splicing the provided poems. The poets appropriated were Robert Burns, Kevin Williamson, Kirsty Logan, Liz Lochead, Michael Marra, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Carol Ann Duffy and Jackie Kay.
