Distant Calls, 2021


Distant Calls created in collaboration with a sea shanty choir, was performed on Saturday 10 July to a small socially distanced audience at Gods House Tower, Southampton, and live-streamed across social media channels. A performance of sea shanties echoing within the city walls beside the sea exploring the ritualistic social form of song and its transmutative and sculptural qualities. The recording from the live stream was installed as part of Addendum.

With special thanks to Pauline McWilliams and Salty Sea Dogs John Bailes, Keith Durrant, Tim Inkson, David Jullian, Paul Knight and David Smith ( and Mia for her commitment to making it happen).
