Watch the “Global Love Poem” time-lapse poetry film

During Poetry International (18 – 21 July 2014), the Poetry Library’s exhibition space was turned into a giant page.

Visiting poets from all over the world were asked to contribute a line towards a new collaborative sonnet. The poem grew throughout the festival as lines were added by hand and the poem took its visual form.

The poets were: Kutti Revathi (Tamil), Nikola Madzirov (Macedonia), Ana Blandiana (Romania), Kayombo Chingonyi (Zambia), Rhys Trimble (Wales), Sujata Bhatt (India / USA / Germany), Sabrina Mahfouz (British / Egyptian), Michael Augustin (Germany), Inua Ellams (Nigeria), Tom Warner (England), Maitreyabandhu (England).

The Global Love Poem exhibition at the Saison Poetry Library also included PoetryFilm Blackboard, a participatory text/art project devised by Malgorzata Kitowski. (You can just see the blackboard and the participants on the right hand side of the screen.)
