‘digital // distraction’, ‘Stains II’ and ‘Fear’ are three new poems by Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi, commissioned by IMMA and written in response to the IMMA Collection exhibition ‘A Fiction Close to Reality’, 15 Feb-14 Oct 2019. Enyi-Amadi’s poems relate to three specific works from the exhibition by Mary Farl Powers, Nalini Malani and Bassam Al-Sabah. In February of this year, Enyi-Amadi performed as part of the IMMA After event ‘Spoken Realities’ in association with Poetry Ireland. The IMMA After collective invited poets Maighread Medbh, Chiamaka Enyi-Amadi, Padraig Regan and Temper-Mental Miss Elayneous into the gallery space to reflect on the themes within the IMMA Collection exhibition and to respond through spoken word performances
