In addition to The Power and The Virtue exhibition, arts and education training company Changing Relations CIC have produced a thought-provoking 30-minute soundscape – Us Too. Us Too aims to demystify who is affected by Domestic Abuse through transcript interviews blended with classical, experimental and electronic music and has been created by local artist Rupert Philbrick, Doctoral Researcher Ros Walling-Wefelmeyer and The Cobweb Orchestra.
Artwork created by local artist Lizzie Lovejoy in response to the interviews and music will be showcased in a book alongside the soundscape. Through the soundscape and visual artwork Changing Relations hopes to aid self/peer identification and make victim support more likely.
The soundscape is of particular relevance to our exhibition due to Guido Reni’s “The Death of Lucretia” painting which exposes one of the most significant occurrences of violence against women. We are immensely proud of the fact that we are able to showcase local artwork alongside prestigious public and private collections, including The National Gallery and The Royal Collection.
