A LOCAL VOICE | CONVERSATION SERIES III | COLLECTIVE SCULPTURE
A Local Voice is in part a search for the genuineness of face-to-face interaction, a reestablishment of compassion and a step away from the strident individualism encouraged online.
Over two days, local and national people came together to take part in an installation and create a collaborative sculpture with Houston at Two Queens Gallery’s Project Space. People were from all ages and backgrounds, and many had no art experience at all.
An expansive collaboration between Leila, local musicians and participants, the final work was exhibited as part of Summer Art Thread (City Festival) at LCB Depot and has further been exhibited as part of exhibition The Crash, London.
This project was supported by Arts Council England.
