'Reykjavik' - installation at Safn Gallery, Reykjavik 2008.
Tony Trehy is an international art curator, director of the Bury Text Festival, and a poet-text artist. He has published in various international literary journals and has published several books of poetry — including Reykjavik (2007). His poems are also frequently responses to particular gallery or urban spaces, with these texts subsequently installed in gallery spaces in cities from Edinburgh to Reykjavik, Bonn to Melbourne. Robert Grenier: “Just as William Carlos Williams brought ‘American speech’ into the long tradition of ‘making’ poetry in English/American literary usage/language, so Tony Trehy has introduced the lingo/thinking (‘style’) of mathematics into the ‘poem-containing-history’.
