Into the city, November 2020

Letter from Glasgow: PROMISED LAND

I have become accustomed to the rhythm of my everyday circuit, crossing the park to school and back to the flat, crossing the flat to the kitchen window and back to my desk, day after day. In my small and mostly solitary circling there has been no dramatic change from the time before the lockdowns. I am just less interrupted in my work. It is different when you go into the city.

WITH YOU

prayer for our girls

concept & voice:  Manuela Morgaine

music & soundscape: ∑ichaël Grébil

When it happened in Nigeria April 14th 2014, I couldn’t pronounce BRING BACK OUR GIRLS. I could only Pray for our girls. I couldn’t pray without pronouncing your names, more than two hundred. I couldn’t pray without asking Michaël Grébil to compose music for this prayer: WITH YOU.

Today in these pandemic times, I still pray for “our girls”, and more and more inside our Choir of women, Crown Letter sisters trying to create a space to be TOGETHER. Today, more and more WITH YOU.

Paint my hands

The painting is a part of a series of hand gestures used in wedding rituals. The pattern on the hands is derived from the mehendi or henna pattern which is drawn on the bride’s palm. In these paintings the decorative pattern is a silver sheen on the hand. It is what causes an erasure and breaks the form of the hand. Thinking about marking as an act, and in the very act of marking one is erasing. It seems non-violent but may not be. It is quiet and unsuspecting, so much that what is being erased in the process doesn’t mind it so much or even put up a fight. It lets itself get consumed.

WANTS AND NEEDS
Screen print on Vintage paper, 2019

Arlie Hochschild’s term of emotional labour is a Marxist feminist analysis which departs from the psychological accounts of emotion which have predominated, to place it in a sociological framework concerned with the influence of social structures on individual identities, roles and actions under patriarchal capitalism (Ref- Paul Brook)​

Apart from the emotional labour’s general understanding, we also have to consider the heavier meaning it has. Something that’s very specific to the marginalised. Click to read more

The Masters Tools Will Never Dismantle The Master’s House

In dialogue with Saviya Lopes and her Emotional Labour Invoice, seen at the Crown Letter Salon last Tuesday and troubling me ever since.  I keep going in the hope to confront my doubts and fears and hopes and worries with the collective feelings again tomorrow afternoon.
