Dr Parveen Ali talks about her project Phoenix – an art installation exploring the psychological and physical impacts of domestic violence and abuse.
Contains challenging themes and sensitive content, which some may find distressing.
This vitally important art installation uses ceramics to depict the impact of domestic violence and abuse (DVA). To create works that reflect the physical, psychological and emotional effects of DVA, artist Angie Hardwick has collaborated with Dr Parveen Ali (Health Sciences School). In a series of consultations, survivors discussed those effects. The artworks incorporate their words, giving the installation a powerful immediacy which Angie hopes will help raise awareness of DVA and give hope to others.
The exhibition is situated in Protopia, available to view both online and in person at Sidney & Matilda.
