Old Papa Tooth Wart and the Transformation of Puck by Melissa Kime

£3,000.00Price
  • Kime's work is cloaked in Catholic folklore and Magick. The women in her work perform rituals centred upon healing, jinx removal or the prevention of malevolent occurrences. They revolt against religious misconceptions of femininity and unite through the linking of menstrual blood, plaited hair and autobiographical experiences. Kime weaves her way through the memory and activity of wise women, those with inner knowledge and feminine secrets who might easily be accused of witchcraft, just one effective weapon with which to silence or disempower them.
