PERIPHRASIS

in 2019, 

I collaborated with artists Holly Orpen and Adam Leach on a project

with Nunhead Cemetery, in south-east London. 

We made music, volunteered for cemetery clean-up and conservation days, and made rubbings from the decaying poetry amongst Nunhead's Victorian graves. 

The project culminated in a walking poem, constructed from fragments of epitaphs and assembled into a mappable, traceable route through the graveyard.
