Cry Uncial Title. Cry Uncial is the us born of a 13-year-old’s approachment to the other. Fecund dust remains in the air, scents the domestic tank. 2019
Bordüre Spirulina, wallpaper paste. A border which indicates the now, presence in a fleeting moment of falling or levitation. 2019
Arthurian chalice Jesmonite, glass, yellow ochre pigment rests on Caspar David Friedrich’s chalk cliff, thought Marie. Who’s David? I thought you meant Casper, the Disney movie, anytime I hear the name, I think of him. But did you understand the reference when I said Casper, as in this art deco reference. I didn’t understand the Casper thing at all. A relic. 2019
Bayblade Glass. I like how impotent it is, stuck in the wall, it could go the other way and kill me. 2019
Thorny cup, a rose Glass, spirulina 2019
Goblet trio Jesmonite, plastic chain, spirulina. Flying ducks. 2019
Cry Uncial Video (10:58 min) from an Amazon-bought spy cam, a recommendation by a delivery driver, glass holders, USB cable. Marie’s escapades unfold on the way to the fertility clinic, securing her superabundance. As she is watching men with spiral connections, Phil Collins fulfills the desire for a retrograde wish.

Miranda Keyes (b. London, 1991) and Marie Lüder (b. Hamburg, 1988) live together in South London. Marie’s interests lie in the field of fashion, she’s recently been creating cyclist helmets/hats inspired by the romanticised imagery of cowboys, concocted her own perfume and cooperated with a cloud-chaser, that is to say, a professional vaper. Miranda releases booklets, meticulously researches fish skin, builds simple fountains and produces glass goblets. From now on, the duo shall bear the name Cry Uncial.
