Launch of Uh Duh by Sarah Jacobs / Wednesday 25 January 2012

leave a comment »

Please join us at 7pm on Wednesday 25th January 2012 at X Marks the Bökship for a launch and performance reading of Uh Duh by Sarah Jacobs, the inaugural title of the LemonMelon/VerySmallKitchen book series:

The conversation between a poet and an artist at their first meeting was recorded. An extract from the transcription is presented:

‘So how would you where would you how would you describe what you what you do?’


“This poet and artist are a slippery pair. The gaps left by their absent presence are clearly visible on the page as a space for the reader to interact with the text. The particularity of their laughter disturbs me…ha, ha, ha…heh, heh, heh. Like David Bowie’s laughing gnome I can’t quite catch them yet at the same time get left imagining a scary encounter over lunch in which the pair squirt caviar and honey at one another in a Paul McCarthyesque carnival of filth, whilst their transparent words collide in mid-air, smash into one another and leave us quite spent. Writing this tough is a car crash. ”   – Dr. Simon Morris
