*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)
-“I am Enheduanna“- explores
the struggle and resistance of a silenced woman
becoming resonant again!

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

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