              Celebrating the 120th anniversary of artist Len Lye (1901-1980), the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery and the Len Lye Foundation co-publish the first collection of the artist's poetry. Introduced and selected by Len Lye Foundation trustee and University of Auckland Professor Emeritus,... Roger Horrocks, the 42 poems collected in Poems are an exciting glimpse into the literary world of Len Lye. Internationally recognised for his pioneering experimental films and boisterous kinetic sculpture, Lye's practice included painting, photography and the written word, a multimedia practice unified around the artist's declared dedication to movement as an artistic medium. As a schoolboy in Aotearoa, Lye considered poetry to be "a lot of romanticised junk," but after moving to London in 1926 he "woke up" to poetry. Lye befriended many famous poets of the day such as Norman Cameron, Dylan Thomas, Robert Graves, Laura Riding and Gertrude Stein. They encouraged him to write because they saw something very original in his quirky style of speech.
