Paper, box, crushed velvet, lavender


Text-based artwork, included in I AM SO MULTIPLE IN NIGHTS, curated by Pádraic E Moore at The Pool, SB34, Brussels.

‘Is there smoke in the room?’ is a series of letters addressed to the experimental writer Anna Kavan (1901–1968), who tried to develop a form of ‘nocturnal writing’, governed by subconscious thought. I exhibited it under the alias “Babette”.

Artist list: Mehraneh Atashi / Babette / Fiona Hallinan / Allen Jones / Graham Kelly / Perri MacKenzie / Liam Morrow / Gregory Polony / Sophie Varin.
