What the Voice Said

The Suttie Arts Space, Aberdeen

This exhibition presented conversations between characters who are trying to find ways to speak out about stress and characters who are trying to listen. The conversations move between fiction and non-fiction; sometimes overtly escapist, other times confrontationally real.

The large scale photographic prints are of hospitals mid-renovation and streets in the early morning obscured by fog. These vistas place the conversations within the infrastructure of the NHS and the uncertainty of fog. Particular phrases turn up again and again as posters setting a rhythm to the overlapping narratives.

Photographs by Francis McKee, Isobel Lutz-Smith and Tamsin Greenlaw
