16 March: ‘Beneath the Mask: Artists, Archives and A/Gender’ Day at the Sidney Cooper Gallery, Canterbury

This day’s event was in conjunction with the Claude Cahun exhibition which was currently being held in the gallery.

Although I was not documenting this event it was a most informative and interesting day.  It also coincided with a project produced by Sam Vale, ‘Latent: A Hidden History.’ (2017)

The project has repurposed pictures from the S.E. Archive of Seaside Photography, to “act as a tribute, remembering relationships that could not be recorded or lived in the open …”  The images provided by Sam Vale were interesting and very thought  provoking.

During the day Leah Thorn, a local poet from Folkestone  held a fashion show, entitled ‘Older Women Rock’.  I took the following images and were impressed at how brave and positive these women were!

All the clothes had extracts from Leah’s poetry sewn into the fabric in some format.
