Kit Kelen’s bilingual (Esperanto/English) poetry collection and painting exhibition Rompitaj Labirintoj / Bung Mazes brings word and image together, in an abstract meditation on the situation of refugees in the world today.

A bung maze is what the asylum seeker must negotiate in order to find a new home in an unknown place. These pictures and poems offer a largely abstract meditation on the situation of the refugee.

 Christopher (Kit) Kelen is a poet and painter, resident in the Myall Lakes of NSW, Australia. He has a dozen full length poetry collections in English as well as translated books of poetry in Chinese, Portuguese, French, Italian, Spanish, Indonesian, Swedish, Norwegian, Filipino, Greek and now Esperanto. His latest volume of poetry in English is Book of Mother, published by Puncher & Wattmann in 2022. Series Editor for Flying Islands Pocket Poets Series, Kit has mentored many poets and translators from various parts of the world, and run a number of on-line communities of practice in poetry (most notably Project 366 [from 2016-2020]).You can follow Kit's work-in-progress at the Daily Kit.

Book launch & exhibition opening 2pm Sunday 27 November.
