Nonchalant extracts of Edd Ravn’s poetry are presented with an understated, usually monochrome palette. Ravn’s poetry usually deals with the theme of romance in harmony with travel, masculinity and their histories.
In a new series of works, Ravn deals with his knife-edge relationship with language. Words are cut out and become absent from 50-year-old rusty metal sheets, removed from a barn on his family farm. The work presented at Cheeseburn is his largest sculpture to date and focuses on new areas of interest regarding his own country’s past.
