Intersemiotic Journeys: book launch and poetry performance on June 26th from 18:30-20:00
King's College London, River Room, 2nd floor, King's Building, Strand Campus
The event is free, but please register here:
Madeleine Campbell and Ricarda Vidal will present their book Translating across Sensory and Linguistic Borders: Intersemiotic Journeys between Media, which explores translation as a creative, self-reflective and transformative method. Drawing on first-person narratives from artists and performers, Madeleine and Ricarda will examine how an artefact can be translated from one medium to another, for example from poetry to collage, from music to mediated performance or from video art to experimental narrative. The book seeks to understand the creative processes involved in the individual act of translation, and more generally in the perception and expression of art works. This will be followed by a performance by poet and translator Jen Calleja, who will present her feminist intersemiotic translation of Christian Marclay’s The Clock into poetry, which she composed as part of her contribution to Intersemiotic Journeys.
Wine and soft drinks will be available during this event.

The launch is supported and hosted by the Department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries, King’s College London.
