Delaine Le Bas is an English Multi Media Artist from a Romany background who has shown her art extensively both in UK and internationally, including at the Venice Biennale. For centuries Romani people and other Travellers have been making enormous contributions at the cutting edge of artistic culture.
For Felixstowe Book Festival she will be bringing the ongoing library of books that are part of the Le Bas archive alongside catalogues and other material relating to the artworks she has created. This material is an unusual and insightful resource into the culture of Romani people and other Travellers. Delaine can be found at various times in the grounds of the Orwell Hotel and in Felixstowe Library where you can look at the archive, chat to Delaine about her artwork and about issues such as low impact living and the “outsider”in society. You also have the chance to experience psychogeography -one definition of which is “a whole boxful of playful, inventive ways to explore a town”. You can record the results in any medium-artwork,written, film, photography, collage (collecting items) sound, movement (for any age.)
