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
(inscribed on the tablet above).


︎



︎

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!
