‘When something you used to have has disappeared or is missing, an arm, a lover or a leg perhaps, they say that you can still feel it. Occasionally a pain or an irritation, a sneeze or the perfume of a flower on an early summer evening reminds you that the something you have lost will always be there but only as a fleeting moment/thing.’
Published on the occasion of Himid’s solo exhibition at Hollybush Gardens, Water Has a Perfect Memory, this special edition of Hollybush Issue includes a response by Bermudian writer and performer, Andra Simons, alongside poetic companion pieces written by Himid and an expanded text by Magda Stawarska-Beavan, whose work is also featured in the exhibition.
Hollybush Issue is a contextualising device that provides information on artists’ practices through essays, conversations and images. Issues are printed periodically and linked to specific events such as exhibitions, performances or presentations.
