James Knight’s (dis/re)membered explores the relationship between a growing, ageing body and the spaces it inhabits. Themes such as time, metamorphsosis and memory (and its lapses) are played out over 42 visual poems that could be considered parts of one vibrantly colourful narrative.

Imagine a library of self-help tomes, lifestyle magazines and science journals, jammed into a liquidiser with several pints of the author’s own blood, seasoned with wit and cynicism, and you have James Knight’s epic poem… – Richard Biddle

There is an electricity and pulsing rhythm to (dis/re)membered that is unique to James Knight. A hypnotising chromatic transformation takes place through a series of poems and remixes that become darker with the turn of every page. These poems, unsettling and apocalyptic, are underpinned by formal and procedural invention, and mark another vispo-must by one of the UK’s most exciting visual poets. – Astra Papachristodoulou
