SIX Part II: Marley
SIX is a screendance series of six portraits of female artists, released periodically during the year of 2019. Each part unites film, photography, spoken word, and design, and is created in a different place in the world. Through this series we capture the essence of the inner divine feminine, stripped back to her purest form, discovering the elegant energy of the female, and recognising our diversity.
It came to me in a dream that I met my hands as those of another
And it made me wonder
Where do we live when our body feels that of other?
With the twist of palm and clench of knuckle
We pull weeds
Let our thoughts be free to shed their skin and undress
We birthed a crescent moon
Clasped our delicate bones flexed
With everything we touch
Do we feel?
Our hands that touch the type the click the ping
With them do we place upon our crown a song to sing?
Do we feed yourself with sweet words?
And your hands? When you reach between your legs, are they clean?
Fingernails like petals of a desert rose
Don’t blow away
What do we know of these things that we touch, that we hold, that we feel about this way
Stretch and shake pull and question and play
Have so much to say
