Myself , Delia and Margery - a trinity of the sacred and profane , sinners and saints of a kind. Three defiant women with our individual, unconventional attitude to life. Untameable spirits, progressive thinkers living within the inherent societal constraints of our times. In 2018, boundary-breaking visual and sonic artist Cosey Fanni Tutti received a commission to write the soundtrack to a film about Delia Derbyshire, the pioneering electronic composer who influenced the likes of Aphex Twin and the Chemical Brothers. While researching Delia's life, Cosey became immersed in Derbyshire's story and uncovered some fascinating parallels with her own life. At the same time Cosey began reading about Margery Kempe, the 15th century mystic visionary who wrote the first English language autobiography. Re-sisters is the story of three women consumed by their passion for life, a passion they expressed through music, art and lifestyle; they were undaunted by the consequences they faced in pursuit of enriching their lives, and fiercely challenged the societal and cultural norms of their time.
About Cosey Fanni Tutti
Musician and artist Cosey Fanni Tutti has continually challenged boundaries and conventions for four decades. As a founding member of the hugely influential avant-garde band Throbbing Gristle, as one half of electronic pioneers Chris and Cosey, and as an artist channelling her experience in pornographic modelling and striptease, her work on the margins has come to reshape the mainstream. Her first book, Art Sex Music, was a Sunday Times, Telegraph, Rough Trade, Pitchfork and Uncut Book of the Year, and was shortlisted for the Penderyn Music Book Prize.
'Sparked by coincidence and fuelled by strong feelings of like-mindedness, Cosey Fanni Tutti inhabits the lives of two famously iconoclastic women, Delia Derbyshire and Margery Kempe, clearly identifying them as both kindred spirits and profound sources of inspiration, and vividly blending their stories with her own. The result is pure Cosey Fanni Tutti: passionate, original, and fiercely defiant. ', Rupert Thomson
