ON GRIEF, LOSS & RITUAL Edited by Ruth Beale
A5, 24 pages, Colour printing, Saddle stitched, Softcover, 2021
The zine features poetry by Nisha Ramayya, creative responses from artists R.I.P. Germain, Every Ocean Hughes and Priya Jay, with a translation of Jay’s text into Gujarati facilitated by Neasden Temple, and interviews with Hester Abrams of Willesden Jewish Cemetery and Manju Patel from Kilburn Library.
The zine was inspired by Library as Memorial and a conversation about reincarnation with Manju Patel, and a visit to a virtual Death Cafe organised by Willesden Jewish Cemetery, which sparked the idea to collect together ideas about ritual and beliefs.
