I am motivated by the uneasiness of fitting sound into the public sphere through voicing the silenced, the self-censorship. It is here and it is forever present in its absence, however often leads to vulnerability.
This work addresses this uneasiness by exploiting the silent words and the suppressed through performance as presentation, presentation as performance. The combination of different narratives formed through composed recordings, self-written literary work and academic text, attempt to manipulate and migrate spaces in where we exist, a space of vagueness and ignorance in need to be filled in order to replace the silences, expanding on dialectic methods.
The intersection between printed text and spoken word, fluctuates between what is truth and what is the disingenuous desire, resulting to the amplification and non-amplification of fractured narratives.
We fill these silent moments with vocabulary, utterances and colloquial discourses and actions; the small talk, that allows one to pass through this time space between public and private interactions at ease, however this creates an extremely difficult area to be situated within. When does the confessional become the audible and the visible, and in what sense is this and can this be acceptable?
My current practice explores the expanded field of narrative; crossing and stepping within and through the boundaries and structures of public and private spaces. The linear and non-linear formations of these are perceived through language and text, both visible and audible in order to form new discourses.
Sculpturing sound, structuring narratives and performing the other, deriving from contemporary issues, opens up fragmented passages between the things that surround us, and the identities that we portray.
This communication voices and portrays, absence, presence, identity and the body, focussing on the divisions between the communal and confessional space.
