a gift from somewhere radio is a monthly programme where writer and artist Billie McTernan interviews guests to discuss their artistic interests and practices through their selected piece of literature or film. In the first episode, Billie chats with Kenturah Davis about the essay In the Praise of Shadows by Jun’ichirō Tanizaki.
Billie McTernan is a writer and artist interested in the possibilities presented by non-verbal & visual language and writing systems. Her work is nestled in the nexus of literary and contemporary art.
Kenturah Davis is an artist working between Los Angeles and Accra (Ghana). Her work oscillates between various facets of portraiture and design. Using text as a point of departure, she explores the fundamental role that language has in shaping how we understand ourselves and the world around us. This manifests in a variety of forms including drawings, textiles, sculpture and performances.
