In response to the sound of *akwā’s first release ‘Galera EP’ by Johannes Klingebiel & Julian Stetter, the artist Mary Herbert created the cover artwork for the record as well as a limited printed edition. At the Centre pays tribute to the EP’s production, continuing the artist’s ‘exploration of memory and sensation’ which shift ‘between the recognised and the unknown’. 

Smoke Dream, soft pastel on paper, 16 × 31cm, 2020

Mary studied art at Goldsmiths College in London, where she developed a fascination with the materiality of the photographic image and it’s unreliability as a container of memory, and later at the Royal Drawing School where she re-connected with the physical and unconscious aspects of image making through drawing.
