Maia Conran at Kingsgate Project Space
Developing from her research into the disembodied voice, Maia Conran recently completed a residency at Kingsgate Project Space in London, which resulted in an exhibition and performance entitled This island, and its buildings, is our private paradise. she combined enacted and recorded monologues, a computer narrated internet search and sampled voices from found footage with a screenplay co-authored with novelist Yannick Hill. The work examines the possibilities for these polyphonic voices to locate a protagonist and a place.
