In several of her works Tanya Ury has adopted the name of Hermè or Herme (her & me):

Hermeneu­rotic — a collec­tion of works:

The photo­graph herme­sends is the re-working of a Paris fashion pattern publi­ca­tion cover: MODE du JOUR” from 1948; Modèle de Marthe”, orig­i­nally photographed by Bern­heim, features a woman wearing a hat with a ribbon, a netted face veil and two long feathers that like Hermes’ head­dress evoke the winged cap.

The legend, a dedi­ca­tion to a female Hermes replaces the maga­zine title – herme­sends” might signify: herme sends (her/​me sends greet­ings) or hermes ends (but her” story begins here).
