Halo Tango by Diane Dielik is a fictional photographic narrative told from a single found object - a small framed charcoal portrait of a woman ‘Mrs Eyles’ made by another woman Betty Steer in 1962. I found it in a Hackney charity shop and took it back to my artist studio, where it began to resonate.

In the book an accompanying text imagines the act of these two women coming together, one to draw the other to sit. And contemplates ideas of unity, solidarity, the sisterhood and quieter forms of feminist action or resistance.

Part still life, part landscape and part found imagery this series has evolved to form a cryptic story, set within a claustrophobic domestic stage.
