PJ Harvey has released eight critically acclaimed albums, been nominated for six Grammy Awards, and is the only artist to have been awarded the UK’s prestigious Mercury Prize twice (for her albums Stories from the City, Stories From The Sea and Let England Shake). In 2013, she was awarded an MBE for services to music. The Hollow of the Hand is her first published collection of poetry.

Seamus Murphy has documented life and change around the world in still and moving images. He has won seven World Press Photo awards for work in Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Gaza, Lebanon, Peru, Ireland and England. His depiction of Afghanistan and the Afghans over more than a decade was published as a book, A Darkness Visible: Afghanistan. He later made this into an award-winning film. In 2011, he created 12 Short Films for PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake.

Reviews:
“I loved The Hollow of the Hand, a distilled fusing of poems by PJ Harvey with photography from Kosovo, Afghanistan and Washington, DC by Seamus Murphy to make a powerful alchemy, one that broadens the vision” – Ali Smith

“The Hollow of the Hand, P. J. Harvey’s and Seamus Murphy’s book of poems and photographs, is haunting and elusive. Lyrical, song-like, declarative, the poems have a devastating directness; the photos are direct in a different key” – Times Literary Supplement

WERELDSTER PJ HARVEY OPENT HET ILFU 2016!

PJ Harvey presenteert vrijdagavond 22 april haar nieuwe poëziebundel The Hollow of the Hand tijdens een exclusief optreden op het International Literature Festival Utrecht. Ze draagt gedichten voor uit de bundel en signeert na afloop.

The Hollow of the Hand (Bloomsbury, 2015) is een co-productie van PJ (‘Polly Jean’) Harvey en fotograaf Seamus Murphy. Samen trokken ze naar Washington D.C., Kosovo en Afghanistan. Harvey: ‘Het verzamelen van informatie uit secondaire bronnen voelde te afstandelijk voor datgene waarover ik probeerde te schrijven. Ik moest de geur opsnuiven, de grond voelen, de mensen ontmoeten in de landen die mij zo fascineerden. Mijn vriend Seamus Murphy en ik besloten dat we dit project samen gingen ondernemen: ik verzamelde de woorden, hij de beelden.’

Murphy: ‘Polly is een schrijver die gek is op beelden; ik ben een fotograaf die gek is op woorden. Voor haar laatste cd Let England Shake maakte ik enkele films, waarmee ons avontuur is begonnen. Onze samenwerking gaat verder in dit boek. Het is onze blik op ons thuis en de wereld.’

PJ Harvey maakte tot nu toe acht studioalbums, werd genomineerd voor zes Grammy’s en ze is de enige artiest die twee keer the prestigieuze Mercury Prize kreeg uitgereikt (voor de albums Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea en Let England Shake). Komende zomer staat ze op alle grote Europese popfestivals.

Seamus Murphy heeft met zijn indrukwekkende oeuvre al grote delen van het leven en de veranderingen in de wereld op foto’s en films vastgelegd. Hij kreeg maar liefst zeven World Press Photo awards voor zijn reportages in Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Gaza, Libanon, Peru, Ierland en Engeland. In 2011 maakte hij twaalf korte films bij PJ Harveys studioalbum Let England Shake. De foto’s van Murphy worden vertoond tijdens Harveys voordracht op 22 april.

The Hollow of the Hand van PJ Harvey en Seamus Murphy is gedurende het hele festival verkrijgbaar in de ILFU Bookstore.
