Sorelle Povere di Santa Chiara

This project was made in collaboration with the enclosed Franciscan community of Poor Clares, in the Monastery of Santa Chiara in the Republic of San Marino to film and record the life of the members of the community.

Installation views:  ‘Voices of the Sirens’, Montagu Bastion, 24 June – 21 August 2015

A video consisting of individual interviews with each of the 10 nuns in the community, 40 mins. The video is accompanied by a transcript publication of the interviews in the original Italian and translated into English. Designed by Fraser Muggeridge Studio.

A 6-channel audio installation consisting of the voices of each nun and field recordings of the monastery, 13.45 mins

My profound gratitude to the Sorelle Povere, in the monastery of Santa Chiara, San Marino.
