Intellectual Property is a series of long-form poems that propose the law of intellectual property as poetry’s dark twin — both forms task language with the burden of shaping the intangible, and both forms consider human ingenuity to be of infinite value. Weaving through a series of landmark court cases, the poems apply the laws of intellectual property to our private lives and seek to determine what constitutes an idea, and whether we can ever own one. Language’s brutal extreme is usually reserved for the law — this pamphlet explores what happens when it infiltrates poetry.
The poems will be published as a pamphlet in November 2023, at an event at the CCA.
Aea is a Greek-British poet and writer based in London. She writes about deceit, the apocalypse and other good things. Her work has appeared in The White Review, The Rialto, Tolka, among other journals, and the National Poetry Library’s Future Cities exhibition. She was shortlisted for The White Review‘s Poets Prize, was an inaugural member of the Southbank Centre’s New Poets Collective and recently graduated from The Royal College of Art’s Writing MA.
Episodes is an ongoing series of solo presentations that cuts through the main programming at Goldsmiths CCA and provides a counterpoint to the larger-scale exhibitions. Spanning installations, screenings, discursive events and new commissions, the focus of this programme is to provide an experimental platform for emergent practices.
