Artist Talk; Holly Pester

Talk framed through relationship w/ research -> poetry.

Bog butter? Gossip lullabies worksong prawns clairvoyance etc

Fascinated by relationship between things she’s drawn to and how they interact

Influenced by hannah wiener – the fast – hallucinated text. Clairvoyancy – mixed with poetics. Made book by starving herself in her flat. Ritualised experiment on body to create work. Really involved in this via archive research, so involved that she started believing her. Desire led fascination – hallucinations as methodology. Hypnogojia. Space between sleep and wake. Research space – mind wandering. Telephone is storing tank of reserved otherness. Epic of gossip.
