Cosey Fanni Tutti - Re-Sisters (signed Limited Edition)
A limited edition box of the new book from the acclaimed author of Art Sex Music, a vital meditation on womanhood, creativity and self-expression, and a revelatory exploration into the lives of three visionary artists.
‘Passionate, original and fiercely defiant.’ RUPERT THOMSON
Myself , Delia and Margery — a trinity of the sacred and profane , sinners and saints of a kind. Three defiant women with our individual, unconventional attitude to life. Untameable spirits, progressive thinkers living within the inherent societal constraints of our times.
In 2018, boundary-breaking visual and sonic artist Cosey Fanni Tutti received a commission to write the soundtrack to a film about Delia Derbyshire, the pioneering electronic composer who influenced the likes of Aphex Twin and the Chemical Brothers. While researching Delia’s life, Cosey became immersed in Derbyshire’s story and uncovered some fascinating parallels with her own life. At the same time Cosey began reading about Margery Kempe, the 15th century mystic visionary who wrote the first English language autobiography.
Re-sisters is the story of three women consumed by their passion for life, a passion they expressed through music, art and lifestyle; they were undaunted by the consequences they faced in pursuit of enriching their lives, and fiercely challenged the societal and cultural norms of their time.
