Feeling Her Way

Sonia Boyce
Turner Contemporary: 4 February - 8 May 2023; Leeds Art Gallery: 25 May - 5 November 2023
Sonia Boyce’s Golden Lion-winning exhibition Feeling Her Way will come to Margate and Leeds this year. The artwork combines video, collage, music and sculpture to present a body of work that centres around the vocal experimentation of five Black female musicians.
It features award-winning, intergenerational musicians Jacqui Dankworth, Poppy Ajudha, Sofia Jernberg, Tanita Tikaram, and composer Errollyn Wallen, who are brought together by Boyce (both at Abbey Road Studios in London and Atlantis Studios in Stockholm) to improvise, interact and play with their voices. Colour-tinted video works take centre stage among Boyce’s signature tessellating wallpapers and golden 3-D geometric structures, which bring the audience into the work through their highly reflective surfaces.
