When Poetry Becomes Photography

'Dear Reader', by Shannon Ebnor, 2013

Inspired by a poem she wrote two years ago, Shannon Ebner's first exhibition at the Sadie Coles Gallery combines the written word with visual imagery. The Electric Comma began life as a thirteen line poem; 'Dear Reader, Comma...' it starts off in a style reminiscent of a telegram messages. To complete the look, Ebner then transferred the poem onto a road sign signal box to form an electronic text.

This forms the basis of her exhibition, which is being held at 69 South Audley Street until the 2nd November. Also on display are black and white prints of her poem, which has been chopped up to create individual, but incomplete pieces.

As part of this project, Ebner also created a second series called Black Box Collision A, which is running parallel to The Electronic Comma, but being held at the 9 Balfour Mews venue. It is a showcase of the letter 'A', which has been photographed on various locations such as cars, walls, and electronic readers.
