Belongings- Lucy May Schofield & Sylvia Waltering

'Matriarchal powers velvety line the pencil love

Return to sender confrontational contents, mocking exchange

Pickled feelings drip-feed the scaffold memories

Time-stained ovarian sentiment echoes tongues of unchanging'


Individual contributors were selected and approached with the simple request to provide the artists with an object that had a special story or memory attached. They were asked to record that story, yet not reveal it. The artists used the loaned objects as muse and stimulation for their writing to unfold, creating new narrative potential. The artists publication contains photographs of the belongings and the writings they inspired.
