Swirhana Spong @ Pump House Gallery

10 January 2018 - 1 February 2018

A hook but no fish, is the first UK solo exhibition of the New Zealand artist Sriwhana Spong. 
The exhibition follows the artist’s research into the Lingua Ignota, a language invented by twelfth century mystic Hildegard von Bingen during her 39 years at Disibodenberg monastery, Germany.
Central to the exhibition is a new film titled a hook but no fish. For the film, Spong travelled to the site of the monastery where an 8 year old Von Bingen was enclosed with two others and raised as a nun.
