Eskild Beck - Acts of Resistance

This morning Eskild Beck's work was placed at three locations in the town; Abbeygate Street, Moyses Hall Museum and The Traverse. His work ​Diversity is a multiple so that a number of people can take a piece. 


Diversity celebrates difference;

    Includes  imperfection,

      Values the various,

         Eccentric, extraordinary;

             Rejoices in rainbows,

                    Sings solidarity,
                    I nsists: be

                   T rue to


Lynda Turbet

I held a most distressing thought last night
In dream I was a crystal bird
Blinded by a pride so bright
Ascend and soar and rise and more
Shine high and never alight
My luck to take a breath of glass
And saved another night of endless flight
Colours awoke my heart beat fast
Your blank doves swallowed by the sun at last
