Strange World is a space for...
˗ˏˋ ★ ˎˊ˗ Highly emotional content shared by a highly sensitive being ˗ˏˋ ★ ˎˊ˗
Also, worlding / spells / lovesick notes / sound bathing / image-making / secrets / psychic archaeology / meditations / life force energy!
And yes, it lovingly shares the name of this anthem.
Casting hexes into the wind of the world wide web
But what's in my bag of stars? :
A mud mystery school! Research and offerings in the shape of spellcraft, esoterica, folk memory, psychic archaeology (meditations), mundane magic
Through A Photograph, Darkly
Where the image ends and the spell begins (or, words to accompany images)
Ambient-leaning playlists, mixes and reviews
Book club : )
++ Weird fiction and other anomalous content
Abby Beatrice Quick (b. 1994)
Portrait and documentary photographer, filmmaker, writer and DJ in worlds of myth between swamp and sky.
Based between Berlin and Scotland, working with both analogue and digital mediums.
Moving between the realms of personal practice and commissions to create poetic and sensitive portraits of a subject or environment, I explore with intimacy themes of spirituality, folk belief, ecology, belonging and transcendence, held in the space between worlds of the material and intangible.
Through text-based and curatorial work, objects and materials become sentient inhabitants in the landscape of the mind. In turn, my approach to image making is speculative, rooted in a pull towards perceptions and constructions of reality. Between the earthly and the metaphysical, sensuous and sublime, both camera and body may become vessels for exploring possible worlds.
Previous projects include ‘Nymphaea Alba’ a dance film exploring girlhood, alienation and body politics within a mythic context, film-poems ‘Silver’ surrounding the life of a water sprite that lives inside of a granite quarry, and ‘Tentative Recollections (In Darkness, It Gleams)’ imagining the feeling of holding a memory in the palm of your hand.
