Join us for a performative lecture with Dimitrios Bormpoudakis. In this lecture Dimitrios will use text and sound to build a geographical impression of the English countryside that explores the phantasmagorical intersections between the natural environment and urban spaces.

Dimitrios Bormpoudakis is a researcher at the School of Anthropology and Conservation, University of Kent (UK) interested in geographies of infrastructure, urbanisation and field recordings. He has published work on soundscapes, neo-liberalism and environmental governance. He has also released a CD called 'Frogs of Kerkini' (Orila Records) and lives by the sea.

This lecture is part of 'A Cut From Sharp Grass', a visual art exhibition & series of public events developed in response to the increasingly urbanised, networked & technologically integrated landscape of Kent. The project features new works from four artists; Verity Birt, Emma Gibson, Lou Lou Sainsbury & Rosie Grace Ward. 'A Cut From Sharp Grass' is curated by George Harding & Kris Lock with support from Dimitrios Bormpoudakis.

'A Cut From Sharp Grass' is supported by and part of MARGATE NOW. Find our listing and many many other exciting events at: - #MargateNOW
