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, the participants in A Local Voice and local musicians, the final work was exhibited as part of Summer Art Thread (part of City Festival) at LCB Depot and has further been exhibited as part of exhibition The Crash, London.
