Description

Sonia Boyce depicts intimate social encounters that explore interpersonal dynamics. Working across drawing, photography, video, and installation, she composes works from images and voices captured during the participatory events she initiates. The exhibition Feeling Her Way (2022) is comprised of tessellating wallpapers, golden geometric structures, and colour-tinted moving-image works that immerse the space in the sound of Black British female vocalists, embodying feelings of freedom, power, and vulnerability. The central work shows the singers as they meet, improvise, and perform acapella together for the first time, demonstrating the potential of collaborative play as a route to innovation, a central tenet of Boyce’s practice.
