LAST 4 DAYS: nick-e melville @ Interviewroom 11, Forest Centre +
DOLE is an investigation into the mess that Social Security leaves behind. Poet & artist nick-e melville has rifled deep into this mess to unearth the art from the worthless remains of benefits. As a scrounger melville is ideally placed to do the work that no one else wants to do.
Found JSA letters, memos, forms & poem-objects manifest the art & poetry of DOLE. As the ideological attack on benefits, & those who receive them, continues, melville uses the only skill the state can’t control - his eye for a find – to question & mock the logic & language of austerity Britain, 2013.
Exhibition dates: 6-16 November,
Gallery Hours: Wed-Fri 2-7pm, sat 11am-2pm
