Poetry & Scent

In an imaginative if somewhat unusual project, curator Debra Riley Parr and perfumer David Moltz got together to present "Volatile! A Poetry and Scent Exhibition". In the video below, visitors to the show, described as "an interrogation of how language and scent interact", talked about their discoveries.

The exhibition was presented in Chicago by the Poetry Foundation and ran from December 11, 2015, through February 19, 2016.

Also watch this video interview with David Moltz, who relates how he created a "scent narrative" for the exhibition.

Moltz's perfumery is the Brooklyn-based D.S. & Durga.
