Glasgow international 2018

20 April—
7 May

Christopher L G Hill

Christopher LG Hill born 1980, Melbourne, Victoria; lives and works in Melbourne.

Christopher LG Hill was co-founder of artist-run space Y3K and has participated in, and organised, many exhibitions. Since 2011, Christopher L G Hill has sustained an open-ended project of twitter poetry which has extended to multiple platforms. Through fluid yet disciplined haiku-like tweets, a multi-stanza poem has emerged, described on twitter.com/CLGHill as “a florid poem flailing in reflexivity”. This poetry practice looks at the written work as an extension of a free anarchic practice, a space between object, word, and friendship.
