In this video artist Fayen d’Evie discusses her work Myopic Voices, Echoing Horsham, in collaboration with Bryan Phillips at Horsham Regional Art Gallery as part of Seeing Voices.
Seeing Voices uses Monash University Museum of Art’s collection as a springboard for thinking through the voice and how it is visualised, employed and reimagined in works of contemporary art. In the exhibition, the voice opens onto a multiplicity of concepts. It acts as a metaphor for collective action; for speaking out against injustice and coming together in gestures of solidarity. It is a marker of cultural and geographic specificity; a medium for conditioned colloquialisms and the trace of disappearing language or dialect.
