Asylum Chapel – Sounding the Walls


Site-specific work for multiple speakers at Asylum, Peckham, 3rd July 2014. Performing alongside Patrick Coyle, Jenny Moore, Julia Calver, Gen Doy; curated by Edward Ball.

The speakers played fragments from my reading of Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent, which features a South London almshouse which may or may not be the same Licenced Victuallers’ Benevolent Institution to which the chapel was attached. They also played fragments of sounds created by running my hands over the walls, chairs, doors, plaques and masonry fragments in the space.
