I Have A Voice

Solo performance action

Sephour 06 Exhibition

Catalyst Arts, 2016


The bells for the Silent Witness exhibition were created using a plaster mould.  During an artist talk in Catalyst I performed the action signifying the emergence of a voice after the creation and installation of the mute bells. The installation contained inherited objects. The hammer used to fracture the mould was also an inherited object.
