This installation is an immersive experience interconnecting personal narratives, histories, experiences, and imaginaries as a form of catharsis for the poet and the viewer. Featuring poems screen printed on canvas hanging from laundry lines, the installation will also include tailored public facing performances that explores issues around womanhood, sexual and gender violence, feminine agency, healing and reimagination.
The hanging poems tell many personal stories for the viewer to experience whilst walking through the space, a physical representation of the metaphor “hanging your dirty laundry in public”.

So as a lover of all things art and culture, i thought it was time to have a go at a video interview series and thus Culture Diaries was born. I have only been able to shoot six episodes as a pilot season but touch wood i will get the resources i need to […]
