Litmus Commission (part 5)

Freya Dooley

10 February 2018 - 11 April 2018

Freya Dooley Litmus Commission Research collage 2017

Oriel Davies is delighted to announce Freya Dooley has been selected for Litmus (part 5), which takes the format of a commission.

Freya Dooley works with text, moving image, sound and performance. Recently, her research has explored anecdotes, semi-fictions and vocal characterisations; referencing literature, pop music, playback-singing, the sexual politics of soap operas and Greek Mythology.

For her Litmus Commission, Freya uses the Litmus space as an intimate container for a moving image and multi-channel sound installation. The work digresses from the story of Echo the nymph, to create meandering lyrical narratives relating to the loss, leakage and leverage of the voice.

Litmus is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
