NO MAN’S LAND
No man’s land
a : an area of unowned, unclaimed, or uninhabited land. b : an unoccupied area between opposing armies. c : an area not suitable or used for occupation or habitation.
No man’s land is an audio-based installation that displays five different sculptures.
The sounds are housed by female legs; their voices, telling their stories.
Seated throughout the exhibition, only to be heard by the ones who come close enough.
I’m taking on the role of a translator of sorts.
A collector of female stories molding them into something tangible.
Unspoken experiences brought to light in a conversation.
One to be had
men amongst men.
