Holly Pester presents new project Common Rest with an accompanying event Lullabies and Curses at London’s Peckham Pelican on December 1.
The multimedia project includes a book of poems as well as a 10-inch vinyl album that was developed during her residency with Hubbub at the Welcome Collection to explore ‘different female responses to ideas of work and play, care and collaboration, motherhood and sexuality, curses and spells.’
Each of the 7 tracks on the album is made in collaboration with another artist, including Emma Bennett, Vahni Capildeo, Jenny Moore, Nat Raha, Vera Rodriguez, Verity Spott and Claire Tolan. The album artwork is made by Marianna Simnett.
The event will be host to a night of readings, performances, songs and spells by contributors Raha, Spott, Pester, Rodriguez, Moore, as well as Mrylyn Tan and Linda Stupart.
