We are joined by Gibraltarian poet Gabriel Moreno for this installment of Two Poems. Gabriel’s recent work has been concerned with the myth of Orpheus, a story that he has recrafted into a modern day poetry series about searching, loss and renewal.
For this performance, Gabriel has read Ballad of the Moon by Federico Garcia Lorca, and to remain faithful to the original poem, he has read it in both Spanish and English. But to start, Gabriel has performed his own poem, Orpheus and the Maenads.

It is often hard to tell whether the curators at the ICA have a sense of humour. I like to think that this exhibition illustrates that they do have a little laugh at themselves every once in a while. Or at least I hope that they at least see the irony that they have inadvertently created.
At the end of last year George Whitman, the proprietor of Shakespeare & Co. passed away. A literary champion with as much of an international following as his famous bookshop, Whitman ‘offered work, shelter and support to countless writers’. This article, from the art and photography magazine State, touches on Whitman’s history and the legacy he has left behind.
Over the last few weeks I have had the privilege of working with the fantastic Pigeon Magazine, and for the next couple of weeks, will be displaying work alongside them at our show at Five Years Gallery.
Pigeon is the publishing body formed by Rebecca Field, Tamsin Devereux and Jake Evans. As practising artists in their own right, they crafted Pigeon as a curatorial platform, existing both in print and pixel, to cast a critical eye over the issues within the contemporary art world.
As part of their work for the Sites of Alternative Publishing exhibition, they are showing this delightful short video, which gives a snapshot of their collective practice.
