"Art is a guarantee of sanity" Louise Bourgeois
As part of the exhibition ‘Observations‘ a creative writing workshop took place on Friday 23 January 2015 at Sussex Coast College Hastings. It attracted 15+ participants & was led by Lille based English writer & translator Ian Monk. The workshop referenced the photographs on exhibit & created an alternative perspective on the artist’s work.
