THE HISS OF THE BLOW

Information to come.

The Hiss of the Blow (2009) is a three-screen installation commissioned for the Jerwood Space in London (£5k) and exhibited as part of the Laboratory Exhibition. A series of 2 minute single takes mimicking the length of women's boxing bouts, the artwork deals with the choice made by two women to take up professional boxing following serious trauma and illness, adopting verbatim methods to shape interview testimony into song lyrics that the boxers then perform. The installation featured in Art Monthly, Artists’ Newsletter, Time Out and Animate Projects.
