Irregular Pearl
from inside women's spaces

Janelle Mendham,  Llewellyn Negrin, Chrissie Berryman

The exquisite interior ornamentation of Hadley’s Orient Hotel is echoed through the elaborate, decorative, excess and unpredictability of  baroque music played live in-situ by Duo Antiqua.  Inside, below I draw the music as it twines and flows through deeper spaces. 


 * The term baroque comes from the Portuguese word barroco meaning misshapen pearl - irregular pearl
