Xenas-Zaftig August 2021

This experimental installation rewrites the mythology of the feminine divine. Words are woven through object, projection and print in order to enact the physical experience of womanhood.

Touching upon sexuality, gender and maternity, Xenas-Zaftig is a bold collection of work that speaks directly to the poets’ experiences whilst confronting the difficult narratives surrounding the feminine body throughout western culture.


Using materials such as crystal, velvet, moss, seaweed and clay, the poet externalises trauma from the body and gives access to the softest recesses of reproductive organs.
