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. These visual and textual outcomes are now being released through a series of handmade limited edition pamphlets.
Originally published as a series of pamphlets (see below), images and essays from the research are now published together as Becoming, a beautiful hand-made hardback, made to order, with glass-paper dust jacket, at just £20.00 plus postage and packaging.
