Alice Maher’s ‘Vox Materia’ began with an old stone carving of a mermaid in Kilcooley Abbey, from which she has drawn a new body of work on mermaids, silence, and monstrousness. A collaboration with Cork Midsummer Artist-in-Residence Doireann Ní Ghríofa led to a sequence of 13 new poems, from ‘Another Orgasm against a Wall’ to ‘The Saint of Peacock Lane.’ Due for publication by Salvage Press in autumn.
