Poem set in hand-drawn typography, moulded into ceramics. Inspired by the evolution of the term “gossip”, whose etymology “God” and “Sibb” in early modern England initially translated to a godparent, a mid-wife and later on to a strong and spiritual friendship amongst women (source: On the Meaning of ‘Gossip’ by Silvia Federici). The poem reclaims the rebellious, empowering and transgressive nature of gossips.
