The Errant Muse, Victoria Gallery & Museum, University of Liverpool 16 November 2019 - 28 March 2020, extended 20 October – 29 November 2020

This innovative exhibition brings together, for the first time, new work by long-time collaborators artist Charlotte Hodes and poet Deryn Rees-Jones. Showing across a set of interlinked spaces in the gallery, the exhibition engages with objects and manuscripts from the Victoria Gallery & Museum and the University of Liverpool’s Special Collections, foregrounding the lives and works of women writers and their ‘errant’ voices across three centuries. Relieved of the narratives of genre and time, these objects, in a series of startling juxtapositions with new poems, images, and animated films, create a fresh memoryscape for the imagination, exploring women’s creativity in the twenty-first century.

The exhibition includes Hodes’ animated film with Rees-Jones poem ‘And You, Helen’ (‘quietly magnificent’, Welsh Arts Review) and their AHRC Research in Film Awards shortlisted ‘Questions of Travel
