The world of Philip Larkin’s poems is often read as a melancholy backdrop to loneliness and failure.

In this exhibition, artist DJ Roberts explores Larkin's work finding a more robust and life-enhancing quality. Through works in neon, drawing and a display of pop culture ephemera, Roberts finds a hidden, 'enormous yes', rarely gleaned by Larkin readers.
