Freya Dooley’s imaginative, performative, impressive proposal for our ESP Members Show wowed us all and the Cardiff based artist has been selected to make a solo exhibition to take place in March 2019.
In the coming months we will work with Freya as she develops a multi-channel sound installation, incorporating moving image, activated with live performance which will oscillate in and out of control of broken narratives, individual and grouped voices: the solo and the chorus.
Writing is at the centre of Freya’s practice, which combines literary and pop culture references to create fragmented monologues, soundtracks and auto/biographical semi-fictions, and explores the voice as something in-between sound and language, thought and body. Her show at Eastside Projects will be her most ambitious project to date.
We can’t wait.
