Poem by Fiona Banner aka The Vanity Press
Artist Fiona Banner aka The Vanity Press reads a poem onboard the MY Esperanza as her 'Peanuts Full Stop' and 'Orator Full Stop' are transferred onto the Greenpeace ship at Tower Bridge in London.
Some sculptures that are a void COMMA a space
COMMA a breath PERIOD Some sculptures that are a
pause PERIOD That call for a stop COMMA that are
agents for change PERIOD Some sculptures about the
wetness of the eye vs the wetness of the sea PERIOD
Some sculptures about the gulf PERIOD between
words PERIOD and action PERIOD Some sculptures
that are for squid not quid PERIOD Some sculptures
that know that the sea is the bottom line PERIOD Some
sculptures that understand that turning a page is
reminiscent of a wave and that a chapter is the tide
COMMA twice a day and are clear that we must turn the
page EXCLAMATION Some sculptures that understand
that language is slippery PERIOD That a seal is not
necessarily a seal when there is a deal COMMA for an
eel PERIOD Some sculptures with a porpoise PERIOD
Some sculptures that are a channel HYPHEN all
sculptures are a channel PERIOD Some sculptures that
understand that the sea is not only a conduit but also a
barrier PERIOD some sculptures that will punctuate
and connect that channel PERIOD Some sculptures
that go willingly to their watery grave COMMA that
might well be exhumed one day PERIOD Some
sculptures that hearby set sail PERIOD Some
sculptures that are hopeful COMMA as this boat is for
hope PERIOD And know that hope in this case means

The sculptures will be deployed as an installation at sea in the Dogger Bank protected area. The art action completes the placing of granite boulders by Greenpeace UK inside the Dogger Bank marine protected area in the North Sea to ensure bottom trawlers can no longer operate in the new bottom trawler exclusion zone.

Greenpeace UK activists place inert granite boulders at precise locations inside the Dogger Bank marine protected area in the North Sea to ensure that bottom trawlers can no longer operate in the new bottom trawler exclusion zone.
The Dogger Bank’s seabed is one of the North Sea’s most important habitats. It is home to sandeels, crabs, flatfish and more. These species are a vital food source for porpoises and seabirds like puffins.
