Hong Kong-born British poet Sarah Howe presents Six Windows, a reading and talk based around six new poems which provide alternative entry points into AAA's Collection.
'Six Windows' also plays on the charged dynamic involved in responding to visual artwork verbally and in text. It points to how, as a poet or an art writer, verbal constructs refocus the way of seeing original works—like viewing them through a new lens or a window frame—clarifying some things, while obscuring others. Howe's poems also dwell on the metaphor of the browser by using 'windows' in a digital context as her research has primarily been remote and web-enabled.
15 Invitations for 15 Years is supported by the S. H. Ho Foundation Limited, the C. K. & Kay Ho Foundation, and The Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
Sarah Howe is in Hong Kong thanks to the University of Hong Kong's Faculty of Arts and the Hong Kong International Literary Festival 2016.
The programme is part of the ADC 20th Anniversary Celebration Series. Special thanks to Hani Charaf, Kemistry Design.
