  1. Dear Emily Blewitt,

    Hello, my name is Lynn Lu and I am a visual artist from Singapore and based in London.

    I recently came across the stunning Furies whilst researching a new project,
    and wanted to seek your permission to possibly include Wrecker in the audio part of a performance I’m developing:

    My project is entitled Haumapuhia Rising, a new commission for Performance Arcade (NZ) this February.

    When I was contacted last October for this, the Harvey Weinstein scandal was just unfolding and women all over the world were breaking their silence on male violence and predation. Where women have often been historically and systematically disbelieved – dismissed as hysterical, manipulative and dishonest – the #metoo movement signaled the rise of an epic counter-narrative: Women’s stories.

    Amid the tsunami of #metoo revelations, I learned of the Maori myth of Haumapuhia who was betrayed and drowned in a spring by her own father. Face-down with her long black hair undulating in the foaming waters, the force of her thrashing formed the arms and inlets of a great lake.

    In my piece Haumapuhia Rising I will recreate this archetypal image of a wrathful Asian female spirit – wild-haired and white-gowned. I shall float face-down in Wellington Harbour for two hours each day over the period of two weeks. And in the spirit of The Furies who hound the wicked to madness, voices of women will roar from beneath the water’s surface.

    The audio will comprise of about 30 poems by raging women all over the world, recited and layered in triplicate to invoke the Erinyes and an incantation. Please find attached a short clip (What You Are by Singapore poet Tania De Rozario) of how the audio will sound.

    Poets will be credited in all publicity and subsequent documentation on my website;
    if you’re happy for Wrecker to be included, please advise re: fee, etc.
    The production budget is small, but I shall do my best!

    Thank you very much for your time and kind consideration, and I hope to hear from you.
    Best wishes, Lynn
