Who was Marietta? That is the mystery. Can you capture her in a poem just by handling her clothes? That’s the challenge that Bristol poet and artist Hazel Hammond set herself when she was asked to help catalogue the clothing of this little-known fashionista from Brighton.
Marietta was 90 when she died in 2016. She left behind her partner of many decades, John, and a wardrobe full of clothes. Using a mixture of poetry, photos, moving images and shadows, as well as Marietta’s clothing Hazel brings the mysterious Marietta, of the snakeskin handbags, the lacy negligees and the cruise labelled trunk with spaces for six pairs of shoes to life for one week only.
