ON MARGATE SANDS

June 19, 2016

ON MARGATE SANDS 

I can connect 

Nothing with nothing

 

In June 2016 Conrad Armstrong and Emma Gibson had a joint exhibition SHADOWS at Resort Studios in Margate.

 

Conrad wrote ON MARGATE SANDS in response to T.S Eliot's poem 'The Wasteland' which Eliot wrote in Margate while in recovery from a mental breakdown. Eliot would sit and contemplate in the iconic shelters on the promenade during this time.

 

The sorry state of many of these shelters is a poem from Margate telling of its own breakdown, the decline of British sea-side town and hopes for the future.
