MilkyWayYouWillHearMeCall is a collaborative research project by artists Emma Bolland and Tom Rodgers and curator Judit Bodor exploring the relationship between place, memory and mourning. The title of the project is taken from the novel Nineteen Eighty by David Peace, a fictional re-imagining of the hunt for Peter Sutcliffe, the ‘Yorkshire Ripper’, in the late 1970s and early 1980s in West Yorkshire. Using fragments of the text as their starting point, the research involved visiting sites that are described in the novel and gathering material to create a co-authored body of work which seeks to integrate visual practice, curatorial intervention, research, documentation, fictional, and theoretical writing.
Becoming 01 is a set of five pamphlets that focus on gesture and the hand using film photography and fragments of texts. Becoming 02 focuses on a motif of the wild roses found growing at one of the sites. Illustrated with film photography and drawings, it features a full length essay Snow White and Rose Red which examines risk, the vulnerability of the body, and the nature of risk and collaboration.
To order please select from the postage options for the full set of 01 below, and 02 will automatically be included in your delivery.
