On the (im)possibility of a pure praise poem

In an interview with Ian MacMillan in 2006, the poet Geoffrey Hill spoke about "the impossibility of a pure praise poem".

Hill's bold assertion forms the basis of enquiry for this exhibition, which brings together work by the late Benedictine priest, theologian and Concrete poet Dom Sylvester Houédard (aka dsh), with work by three contemporary artists: Aliki Braine, Mark Dean and Anna Sikorska.

The exhibition explores, in various media, whether the creative act and its product can ever comprise 'pure praise', or whether the incidence of a 'pure praise poem' (or equally of a pure praise photograph, painting, video or sculpture) is unattainable.
