An evening of poetry reading, live drawing and celebration for the release of Effigies, Ricardo Reverón Blanco’s debut poetry collection.

About this event

just like with clay, I mould my brain’s voice to the

rhythmic whispers it sings through my darkest slumbers.

that is my effigy.

a sculptural manifestation of my psyche.

I am the only one that can see, hear and fear it

- but now, I will share its existence with you, reader.

we hope it is modelled to your liking.

Effigies, Ricardo Reverón Blanco

Inspired by Carl Jung’s shadow work theory, Effigies materialises the many personas we embody throughout the course of our life. Ricardo writes about saviours, confidants, virtue signalers and erudits amongst liars, cretins, manipulators, and impostors. This launch will animate these characters through a life drawing session delivered by Artists, Models, iNK.

You will have the chance to meet the author and collaborators, purchase your copy and even reserve your own signed copy.

Come along to see, draw, and listen to the inner dialogues that take place in the depths of our minds.

This event will be photographed by Phoebe Wingrove. Presented in partnership with Fabrica.
