Holly Pester’s Planula Tales is the second manifestation of a series of commissions in which artists have been invited to haunt Rhubaba.

Holly will carry out a series of three short readings over three evenings. Each reading will be from a work of experimental verse fiction, telling the tale of a ghost living on the seabed. Each composition will attempt to voice subject positions of waste, rather than body; of plotting from the seabed, rather than mapping the sea voyage; a poetics of abortion rather than creation.

Each reading can be heard exclusive of the others, or in a series to make a larger whole.

There’s a ghost in my house is a programme of commissions in which Rhubaba invited artists Sarah Boulton, Holly Pester and Áine O’Dwyer to investigate the notion of ‘haunting’ culturally and conceptually, and occupy Rhubaba in ways that might be unexpected, unsettling or uncanny.

In collaboration with Nazia Mohammad, a residual presence of the readings will remain in Rhubaba, in the form of a sound work made using recordings of the readings. It will be available to listen to by appointment, and to all visitors to Rhubaba at other times.
