Sorelle Povere di Santa Chiara

Sorelle Povere di Santa Chiara

A collaboration with the enclosed Franciscan community of Poor Clares, in the Monastery of Santa Chiara in the Republic of San Marino.  I spent a few days filming and recording the community.

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

A video of a brief statement to camera by each of the ten nuns in the community, 40 mins, accompanied by a transcript publication 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.
