Debby Akam


Launch event 5-8pm Saturday 9th September with drinks and nibbles.
Christl is a collaboration by Debby Akam, Gary Power, Phoebe Power and Michael Hedges. Developed from archive recordings of a monologue spoken by Christl Power (the mother of one of the artists), the artwork uses poetry, sculpture, video and sound in an immersive multi-voiced narrative.
Christl’s revealing account of her life includes references to war, her marriage and feelings of displacement on leaving her home country of Austria to live in the UK. The installation includes a film documenting a ritualistic response to this material in which 240 candles are lit around a figure standing within a willow structure.
