[Word Incarnate]

Trinity Theatre and Arts Centre
Church Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1 1JP
May 24 – June 1, 2011

Looking back to Trinity’s roots as a place of worship, and, linking this to its current use as a lively Arts Centre, [ Word Incarnate ] explores the concept of incarnation: the word becoming flesh. Showing work by two artists, Karen Gardner and Jess Levine, the exhibition includes works in mixed media – paint, collage, and bricolage, 2- and 3D – referencing text, either explicit or implicit. One ground-breaking piece by Karen Gardner employs the application of voice recognition text projection using the captured words of audience as subject.
