by the writings of Ursula K. Le Guin and Hannah Sullivan, Three Poems was a
semi-autobiographical triptych performance by Amy Gillies. The piece follows a young woman
as she reflects on three pivotal points in her life. Exploring themes of
identity, home, and nature. Gillies contemplates the relationship between place
and memory. She conjures scenes that capture both intimacy and loneliness,
whilst exploring the various definitions of home. The poem was laced with
reworked anecdotes from previous writers who have attempted to interrogate
their own identity through poetry.
Gillies is a visual and performance artist who lives and works in London. Employing
painting and poetry as a vehicle for social and political dialogue, her
practice is concerned with the memory of the past and
the politics of the present.
In 2019, Amycompleted an MFA in Fine Art from Kingston School of Art,
where she had studied a BA Hons in Fine Art and Art History previously.
