Heart Shape Pornography. Philip Davenport, Liverpool Biennial 2005





Philip Davenport's poems appear in art galleries, recordings, posters, publications, performances, streets and shop windows, inscribed on objects, and in books. His projects question social inequality and emotional dis/engagement. 

Inscribing apples, labelling litter, or re-processing spreadsheets, Davenport gives voice to the quiet and the hidden. Loss, violence, desire, oppression, are articulated using words and objects, connected through space, like 3D sentences. Secreted inside eggshells ("eggskulls") is a poem about genocide, street litter gives voice to an elegy for mass production, missing people are remembered on lamp posts all over Europe, and on washing lines in China...  

Davenport’s small press Apple Pie Editions publishes books, CDs and catalogues that document these projects, along with works by many other poets and text artists. He is a longtime associate of the Text Festival in the UK. In 2013, his anthology THE DARK WOULD appeared as a sequence of publications, exhibitions and performances. He is the first Guest Editor for Synapse International.
