Sonia Boyce, "Feeling Her Way," Great Britain Pavilion, 2022

Sonia Boyce: Feeling Her Way, Great Britain Pavilion

Artist Sonia Boyce represents Great Britain with her exhibition “Feeling Her Way,” at the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia through November 27. Curated by Emma Ridgway, Chief Curator at Modern Art Oxford, and associate curator Shane Akeroyd, the exhibition presents a spirited installation spotlighting the vocal performances of five Black female musicians: Errollyn Wallen, Jacqui Dankworth, Poppy Ajudha, Sofia Jernberg, and Tanita Tikaram. The primary video installation reveals the singers at Abbey Road Studios as they are introduced and guided by Boyce in an imaginative improvisation. 

The artist, a key figure in the Black British art movement of the 1980s, has always experimented with art and expression. “My desire in bringing you together is to explore how you might feel free. What kind of conditions might you need to feel free to express yourself, when not constricted by what others feel you should be, or could be? What does it mean to feel free … and how might you play?” said Boyce.
