Publications by Adinda van ’t Klooster    


The Still Born book is an artists' book by Adinda van ’t Klooster that aims to break down the taboos around stillbirth. The artist had a stillbirth in 2010 and spent the following ddecade making a series of drawings, prints, sculptures and an online artwork on the theme of stillbirth. In 2017 she invited eight poets to respond to a selection of her artworks. Participating poets are Roger Bloor, Christine Bousfield, Jennie Farley, Rebecca Goss, Sarah James, Karen McCarthy Woolf, Claire Potter and Wendy Pratt. The artworks and poems were first brought together in 2018 in the Still Born book which further includes an essay by Prof Alexander Heazell on ending preventable stillbirths by 2030 and an introductory text by Adinda van ’t Klooster.

A second edition of the book was brought out in 2021 and includes a further eleven pages on the online artwork Each Egg a World Online. This participatory artwork allows parents of a stillborn baby to name one of the dots in the artwork after their stillborn baby and write a short statement on their experience of stillbirth. Both editions are available on the still born project website (when you scroll to the bottom of the shops page).

This monograph was published by the University of Gloucestershire to coincide with the solo show by Adinda van ’t Klooster at Gloucester Cathedral to mark the end of her one year residency from October 2003 to October 2004. It includes articles by Francis McKee, Denna Jones, Indira van ’t Klooster and Nicholas Bury. It features images of four installations produced during the residency as well as images of the live interactive performance Sarah was Ninety Years Old that took place in the Slype of the cathedral.
