Body of Writing

Text & photography installation

Salibury Cathedral

LLL recently presented an installation within the cloisters of Salisbury Cathedral featuring the writings of prisoners developed in workshops at HMP Erlestoke in Wiltshire. The installation consisted of two panelled towers featuring short passages of text alongside images of prisoners' tattoos by Lewes photographer Willie Robb. The project was linked to LLL's Penned Up festival held at Erlestoke Prison in March 2017. A second live literature festival will be held in the prison during March 2018.
