This exhibition reveals the role objects have within history to promote and challenge patriarchal constructions.

Voicing Objects presents a new moving image artwork by Olivia Turner in response to selected clay artefacts from the Shefton Collection of Greek Archaeology. These objects relate to the lives of women in the ancient world, bringing voice to historically marginalised stories. This embodied approach uses artefacts to think, feel, imagine, and voice with. This exhibition reveals the role objects have within history to promote and challenge patriarchal constructions.

Olivia has worked closely with Pippa Anderson, a clinical vocal rehabilitation expert, to create an improvised soundtrack, which explores the voice as a method for care, expression, and healing.

Curated by Olivia Turner, Sally Waite and Leah Wild.
