Freya Dooley

Somewhere in the crowd there's you

  • 2 March — 27 April 2019

Exhibition Launch: Digbeth First Friday, 1 March, 6–8pm

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. We are working 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!
