Artist Sonia Boyce discusses her current exhibition Scat: Sound and Collaboration on BBC Radio 4′s Women’s Hour.
Exploring issues of identity, gender and ethnicity in Britain today, Sonia Boyce uses aspects of both contemporary urban lives and the historical events in which those experiences are rooted. Her current exhibition ‘Scat: Sound and Collaboration’ at Iniva explores the significance of sound in art, playing with history and social identity through the re-appropriation of archive. The exhibition also features aspects of ‘The Devotional Collection’, a multi-media archive which charts the history of black women in the music industry. Sonia joins Jane Garvey to talk about her current projects and reflect on how her work, and the industry, has changed since she burst on to the British Art scene in the eighties.
