Event description
A stunning look at African women’s tattoo and scarification stories.

About this event

Inspired by each other’s tattoo and scarification journeys, Jessica Horn and Laurence Sessou created their visual documentary project to explore the stories and aesthetics of other African women and examine how tattoo and scarification practices connect to histories of ritual, spiritual practice and emotion. TLF is proud to present the first curated look at Horn and Sessou’s ongoing initiative.

Contains nudity.

FREE & part of Festival Saturday Pass.

ABOUT THE TOTTENHAM LITERATURE FESTIVAL

The Bernie Grant Arts Centre’s Tottenham Literature Festival returns from Monday 29th November until Sunday 5th December. Our joyous festival of words is bolder and bigger than ever - and this year welcomes the Booker Prize-winning Bernardine Evaristo, the first Black woman ever to win literature’s most prestigious prize.

This year’s festival, which has both in-person and online events, focuses on the theme of Black ‘revolutionary love’ – love of self, love of community, and romantic love – and the power of that love to heal, inspire and transform. Because in a hostile world, the act of loving one another and ourselves can be radical and transformative.

Featuring Bernardine Evaristo, Yomi Sode, Malika Booker, Kareem Parkins-Brown, Janett Plummer, A Quick Ting On authors, Julianknxx, Lola Olufemi, Nana Darkoa Sekyiamah, Sheba Montserrat, Jessica Horn, Laurence Sessou, Alexandrina Hemsley, Veronica Mckenzie, Muti Masafiri, Village 101, Hear Me Out, Miss Jacqui, Theresa Lola, Nick Makoha and others.
