Alex and Edwin take to the plinth
October 20, 2009
Alex’s series of photographs is called ‘Sonnets from Scotland’, has been exhibited across the world and projected some 70 metres high onto Europe’s largest building – the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest. The exhibition takes its names from an early collection of EM’s poems, and is a direct homage to the poet.
For Alex’s plinth appearance, EM provided a selection of his favourite works to be read to those gathered in the Square below:
The Second Life
From a City Balcony
When you go
The Flowers of Scotland
The Apple’s Song
First Men on Mercury
Sonnets from Scotland – Slate, The Coin,
Planet Wave – In the beginning*, The Flood*
*selected by EM
Alex spent some of his time on the plinth taking a series of new ‘Sonnets’ shots to be auctioned for charity for the Yorkhill Childrens Hospice. A selection of these images will be exhibited at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow from 12 October until 13 November.
