al this blisse was a site-responsive window installation in the main reception of the Horsebridge Arts Centre, Whistable. It took place during Whistable Biennale 2018 and was part of Whitstable Biennale Satellite programme.
The work quotation means ‘all this joy’ and came from the oldest surviving poem in Middle English, Lenten ys come (Spring has come). Artist Colin Booth employed the fragment to evoke the cyclical passage/return of time while simultaneously showing interest in the relationship between historically old and new materials feeding into his work.
An introductory text and a short sound excerpt aaccompanied the white vinyl installation.
