Monologues II: patriarchal traditions and the New Age, 2018 (installation & performance)
The audience is invited to arrive before the performance begins, so as to sit with setting sun as it illuminates 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 window 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.
