A long distance collaboration conceived in lockdown, Lifelines is a series of beautifully crafted poems spoken and scored by poet Nikki Marrone and composer Laura McGarrigle, here recording under pseudonym Gaze is Ghost.

Both artists are first year mothers, and it is in themes of motherhood where the collection finds the most resonance. Charting some of the more profound journeys life offers, its pieces are as much warrior as they are protector – reckoning with intergenerational trauma alongside moments of intimacy and wonder. It is both a reclamation and celebration of the body after birth; an exploration of both challenge and potential.

The moments captured here are lifelines to pull you from the darkness, and push you forwards into life.
