    Ghost Cargo - text art in the skies over Leeds for Refugee Week 2011

    Writing Encounters is proud to announce a collaboration with internationally renowned artist, Caroline Bergvall:

    At midday on the 2011 summer solstice, Tuesday, 21 June 2011, the skies above and around Leeds city centre will play host to a unique sky banner project conceived by artist and writer, Caroline Bergvall, and delivered in partnership with Writing Encounters and Leeds Art Gallery, as a part of the 20th annual Refugee Week celebrations.

    As part of the project, the artist is inviting people across Leeds to pick up their phones and video cameras, and help to gather film footage that will be edited together and screened at Leeds Art Gallery later this year.

    Click here to find out how you can get involved or if you are a Facebook user go straight to the Event page. You can also get involved in the conversation on Twitter using the #ghostcargo tag.

    Bergvall is based in London and of French-Norwegian heritage, and this perspective - crossing borders with language - is at the heart of her work.

    This new piece, entitled Ghost Cargo, is inspired by a small-scale model for a large sculpture by Barbara Hepworth, created as her contribution to the Monument to the Unknown Political Prisoner, an international art competition and exhibition held in 1953 at Tate Britain. Hepworth’s submission did not win the prize and the work has remained unrealised. Yorkshire born Hepworth, a key figure in the development of modern sculpture, was an active and outspoken defender of individual freedom, and this has played a large part in motivating Bergvall to rediscover this moving and highly politicised piece.   

    “As Refugee Week starts on the solstice this year it is a good time to remind ourselves that the sun also creates many shadows, some longer than others", says Bergvall. "Ghost Cargo is an invitation to look up and reflect, and to celebrate the importance of every person’s right to move and settle freely. The text created for this work resembles that of the hangman game, piecing together a few missing letters to make a full phrase. It is often by piecing things together that we become more aware”.

    Refugee Week is a UK-wide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities. Refugee Week 2011 takes place from 20 – 26 June 2011.

    1, The Michael Kors Jet Set Zip-Top Tote, Luggage from michael michael kors handbags watches shoes outlet, Black Michael Kors outlet church answers every Michael Kors Handbags question; and her answers are always the most generous, the most human, and the most kind to the weak. She has a mixed government—monarchical, aris-' tocratic, and democratic; her aristocrats are poor fishermen. By this she is the type of modern governments which have the representative system. Rationalism wants to substitute revolution for this; takes away from the people the good conditions peculiar to them, acquired by Michael Kors outlet, legitimate and Michael Kors Handbags independent of governments; and makes atheism the lever with which to subvert politics. The Michael Kors Watches apostles of rationalism adore liberty, provided they are her priests and sacrificators; create a new Michael Kors Shoes author of civilization—the rabble; oblige kings to divide their authority with the mob; the mob upsets its creatures; kings run away; good men hide; the owners of property, menaced by the dogma of plebeian avidity, oppose the bayonet to the knife of the rabble until these are overcome. Precisely because the temporal michael kors mission of the church is great as the mistress and legislator of nations, precisely because she is authority, the impotent violently, and the powerful foolishly, Michael Kors Shoes attack her at a time when men want rights without duties, the husband as well as the citizen, the laborer as well as the legislator.
