Into The Twilight

Three Artists created work inspired by WB Yeats for an exhibition at The Black Winkle, Hastings for Coastal Currents, 2013.

Aengus ancient

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’:

Some comments from visitors:

“Beautiful, inspiring, haunting and completely doing justice to Yeat’s work”

“Wonderful trip through childhood revisited, beautiful music to accompany”

“A very enjoyable wander around Yeat’s poems”

“Beautiful, really illuminated the poems”

“…moved us to different places and new feelings and thoughts whilst reminding us of lost memories”

“Fantastic and inspiring”59 swans trimmed
