from inside women's spaces
A contemporary lyrical reimagining of Hadley's Public Drawing-Room for Ladies (1896).
The interior ornamentation of Hadley's Orient Hotel echoed through the decorative excess of baroque music played live by Duo Antiqua accompanied by my drawing of their music as it flows through deeper spaces.
* The term baroque comes from the Portuguese word barroco meaning misshapen pearl - irregular pearl
