Another Time, Another Place comprised twelve paintings by Victoria Crowe which inspired twelve poems by Christine De Luca to form a beautiful conversation between an artist and a poet. These paintings represented a return to work in her studio in West Linton, during lockdown, where Crowe found full expression of her life force after recovering from serious illness. The result was a contemplative body of work examining the idea of finding the profound in one’s immediate surroundings. Another Time, Another Place will be reprised at this return visit to the Book Festival and will include discussion around the development of the artist and poet’s collaboration from its tentative roots in Crowe’s Retrospective exhibition of 2019, and how these concerns are echoed in more recent paintings. Victoria and Christine will be joined by Genevieve Fay to discuss their collaboration.
