Gesture and touch provide a gateway to powerful human emotions in this intimate interactive installation.
Wallworth has filmed portraits of 11 women who live in Australia but originated from countries including Afghanistan, Sudan, Iraq and El Salvador. The women have lived through wars, survived concentration camps and experienced violence. They appear when you place your hand on the screen and, although their lips won’t move, you will receive a glimpse into their grief, strength and hope.
