It started with a list- “Girls Names in Songs.” After editing our own compilation of songs, the result of this exhibition is a mixed melody of girl’s names, played through numerous speakers within the installation.
Stripped from both their original form and lyrical narrative, the sequence of names becomes similar to a roll call, still each fragment triggers a more personalised memory, unique to each listener. What were dedications to those of the; past, present and potential are now call outs to what we the audience may provide.
