Daphne and Other Stories




Commissioned text for Daphne and Other Stories, a publication by artist Sarah Taylor Silverwood, to coincide with her exhibition Daphne. Available from Aspex Gallery or you can read it online here

Includes a conversation between Sarah Taylor Silverwood and curator Vickie Fear, and text and illustrations by Jade Anthony. 

My text reflects on themes connected to Daphne, including how women share and pass down knowledge, the disruption of dominant narratives, and the ways in which language and public space police women’s bodies and behaviour.
