En-he-du-an-na-me-en*




* I AM Enheduanna
...the prominent line that resonates with female individuation
from the ancient poem “Exaltation of Inanna”
by Enheduanna 𒂗𒃶𒌌𒀭𒈾,
the first author,
a Sumerian High Priestess writing in 2300 BCE.


︎

Inspired by the text
The Exaltation of Inanna
by the first author Enheduanna
𒂗𒃶𒌌𒀭𒈾
(a Sumerian High Priestess
writing in 2300 BCE),


 
En-he-du-an-na-me-en 
(2019-20)
explores
the struggle and resistance
of a silenced woman
becoming resonant again!


         
︎
Guided by interference and transformation,
Gunduz’s
multi-layered recordings of 
Rosie Middleton’s voice
make up the electronics.


Audience journeys between
        the character’s innermost sounds and
the outer limits of resonance!
