Nat Raha: after Tarek Lakhrissi’s ‘My Immortal’
MOSTYN presents a series of new writing commissions by artists and writers addressing some of the common themes explored in each season programme.
Nat Raha is a poet and activist-scholar, based in Edinburgh, Scotland. She is the author of three collections of poetry, of sirens, body & faultlines (Boiler House Press, 2018), countersonnets (Contraband Books, 2013) and Octet (Veer Books, 2010). Her creative and critical writing has appeared in South Atlantic Quarterly, MAP Magazine, TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly, We Want It All: An Anthology of Radical Trans Poetics (Nightboat Books, 2020), ON CARE (MA Biblioteque, 2020), The New Feminist Literary Studies (Cambridge UP, 2020), and Transgender Marxism (Pluto Press, 2021). Nat co-edited 'Imagining Queer Europe Then and Now', a special issue of Third Text Journal (January 2021) and is co-curator of 'Life Support: Forms of Care in Art and Activism' Exhibition at Glasgow Women's Library (14 August - 16 October 2021). She co-edits Radical Transfeminism Zine.
Nat Raha's response to Tarek Lakhrissi's 'My Immortal' (2021) explores in part her upbringing in Cardiff, through brown queer erotics in nature. The work was composed during a road trip across Wales in August 2021.
