Translation Games is curated by Jenny Chamarette at Queen Mary College and Ricarda Vidal at Kings College, University of London. The first Games were installed at Kings College in 2013. I made a short film, a translation of Colleen Becker’s text ‘What We Made’. Jenny and Ricarda held workshops where we discussed with language students - what it truly means to translate or interpret. These workshops were revealing to me as a visual artist, and crucial to the development of my ideas.

For the second Game in 2014, which was screened at the Poetry Library on the Southbank in London, I ‘translated’ a poem titled ‘Cold’ by Paul Brown. Both these films are available to see here, and then read the texts.
