The Doorways Project is a touring, site-specific sound installation. It explores homeless culture through the personal stories of society’s most silenced people.
Inspired by her experience of life on the streets, Bekki’s direct and unsentimental approach investigates the personal, social and political dimensions of homelessness. Her work considers public attitudes to disability and the role of art in making the invisible present.
Situated in the doorways around Edge Hill train station, the installation is a reflection on the spatial experience of life in a city. Through a series of recorded monologues, audiences are invited to intimately engage with the difficult (and mostly ignored) experience of homelessness, and hear first-hand the challenges it presents. It is a unique opportunity to observe a familiar environment from a different perspective.
The Doorways Project will be at Edge Hill Station from July 7th. The artwork is accessible from the station itself, and will be open each day.
Throughout the duration of the exhibition we will be collecting donations for the Real Love Liverpool Street Team. To see a list of requested items click here.
The project is commissioned by Unlimited, celebrating the work of Deaf and disabled artists.
