Monologues: patriarchal traditions and the New Age (installation / performance), 2018
The audience is invited to arrive before the event begins in order that they may be with setting sun as it streams in through the windows. Each window contains a transparent coloured image: a lady, a metronome, and a hand – flanked on either side by the double sided figure of a speech prompter. The iconography is based on props, video of whose performance accompanies the second in a series of iterative lectures. “Monologues” of the title refers to the lecture itself but also the words of historical feminine figures that inhabit a broad field of research.
