Maria Isakova-Bennett's stitch translations of John Glenday's poems inspired by Mira Schendel

Mira Schendel was a Brazilian artist of the twentieth century, whose modernist works included drawings on rice paper as well as paintings, poetry and sculpture. Her work with rice paper interwove word and image, making use of a number of languages. John Glenday and Maria Isakova-Bennett respond to Schendel's work with poetry and stitch artwork in this stunning and tactile piece.

To hear more about mira, join John and Maria for their Meet the Artist event on Thursday 5 March.
