London-based artist Naomi Joanne Delorme is interested in grief. In her latest project MY LOVE IS A HUNDRED PITCHERS OF HONEY she attempts to create a MANUAL OF GRIEF alongside an exhibition and soundscape to explore the contemporary Western relationship with grief in comparison to the ancestral grief practice of keening. A multidisciplinary practitioner, Delorme’s work combines visual art, documentary and writing. Upon graduation from LCC she is due to commence an MA in Writing at the Royal College of Art in September. She intends to develop her combined practice and specialise in grief, identity, culture and changing narratives.

What’s Love Got To Do With It, Hayward Gallery, London
Love’s ability to sink its intractable teeth into the soul resonated through the Hayward’s new Project Space show What’s Love Got To Do With It. The exhibition is part of the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love and provides a contemplative counterpoint to the Human Factor show downstairs.
