Into The Twilight
Three Artists created work inspired by WB Yeats for an exhibition at The Black Winkle, Hastings for Coastal Currents, 2013.
Kate Iles collected Yeat’s inspired ephemera to create intimate poetic box-worlds such as ’59 Swans’, inspired by Yeat’s ‘The Wild Swans at Coole’
Rebecca Child created an extraordinary life size throne for King Goll in which Yeat’s inspired 3D illustrations are incorporated into the construction.
Ed Boxall showed small Yeats-inspired paintings and drawings often imagining the lives the characters lived beyond the time frame of the original poems. Ed also joined fiddle player Harriet Wilder to perform a selection of musical versions of Yeat’s poems along with some of Ed’s songs.
Ed’s version of a verse from Yeat’s ‘Prayer for My Daughter’:
