Ben Okri
SHOW INFORMATION

BEN OKRI – on dreams of our age.

Do you like stories? Do you like paintings? What is the relationship between painting and writing? Do they both come from a similar place? And for the writer and painter, what part do dreams and reality play? And where do stories and images come from? And do you like hearing stories and seeing paintings?

Booker Prize-winning novelist and poet, Ben Okri, whose books have been translated into 27 languages, has collaborated with painter and printmaker Rosemary Clunie, whose work has been exhibited worldwide, to produce The Magic Lamp - comprising 25 illustrated fairytales for adults. Who can say which came first, the image or the word? But here they are - beautiful, plentiful and together.
