Forward Always – Matthew The Horse

Read a bit more about that here! http://www.itsnicethat.com/articles/matthew-the-horse-publication-forwards-always-300517
Alongside the exhibition of new printed work, Matt will be launching his new book.
Forwards Always is a collection of poems to be read aloud. The book is a toy, a script, a game and a puzzle. These poems are activated through performance and play. How you choose to make sense of them is up to you and your audience. There is a good one about melons.
Matthew the Horse is a graphic artist and poet. He likes other people, the woods and ripe fruit. He is not a horse. Matthew is interested in the lexicon of silliness, uninhibited play and the language of drawing. He wants to make work that feels both familiar and weird at the same time, like boiled eggs. This is his first book of poetry. He loves to dance”
We are super chuffed to announce that Leeds based Eyes Brewing will be supporting the launch night so bob down and get a sample of their delicious wheat beers! They are the UK’s first and only wheat brewery. Read a bit more about them here.
