HERĒMA

London, 28.07.21

A soundscape by Leyla Pillai (Who's That Girl?) to accompany the visual-textual essay Herēma written by Rose Higham-Stainton. Agnes Martin, Beverly Buchanan, Nancy Holt, Agnes Denes, Rebecca Solnit, Sylvia Plath, Viviane Gornick and the anchoresses of East Anglia are brought together for their recall of early hermeticism, and the solitude of desert fathers in vast open spaces. From the act of pious contemplation to the act of painting and writing, these women breach time and space as a liminal and unified she. Herēma is where we listen to the monolith creak.

Because the desert is not empty, publication proceeds will go to medical aid for Palestine. Published by Sticky Fingers Press.
