VOICES

Art Installation

2018 – in progress

300 x 360 cm Organza Maze Art Installation

120 x 150 cm Organza Panels (thread and acrylic tube)

During the last year, I have been working on this piece which consists of a compilation of personal stories of citizens from the 28 European member states who currently reside in the UK. Once I have received the stories I embroider the words into an organza material in both English and their native language, each story is 1.50 x 1.00 m in dimension.

 ‘Voices’ highlights multilingualism within communities and the mixture of cultures sharing those spaces within cities, trying to accentuate the human factor. The organic feeling of the material floating appears ghostly and mingles with the viewer; however the experience is further accessorised by an audio montage which fills the space with a murmur.
