recitatio in foro Trafalgariano

My thanks to Keith Rogers for this early promotion of  the upcoming recitatio in foro Trafalgariano

“The sound of Latin will be heard publicly in London as Jeremy Patterson will be reciting Latin on the plinth in Trafalgar Square from 10-11 am on Thursday 23rd July.

 The whole event is available to view online at http://www.oneandother.co.uk/

Antony Gormley describes the event as follows:

‘Through elevation onto the plinth, and removal from the common ground, the body becomes a metaphor, a symbol… In the context of Trafalgar Square with its military, valedictory and male historical statues to specific individuals, this elevation of everyday life to the position formerly occupied by monumental art allows us to reflect on the diversity, vulnerability and particularity of the individual in contemporary society. It could be tragic but it could also be funny.'”
