Sonia Boyce represents Great Britain at the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia with her exhibition “Feeling Her Way”. Official description: “Sonia Boyce depicts intimate social encounters that explore interpersonal dynamics. Working across drawing, photography, video, and installation, she composes works from images and voices captured during the participatory events she initiates. The exhibition Feeling Her Way (2022) is comprised of tessellating wallpapers, golden geometric structures, and colour-tinted moving-image works that immerse the space in the sound of Black British female vocalists, embodying feelings of freedom, power, and vulnerability. The central work shows the singers as they meet, improvise, and perform acapella together for the first time, demonstrating the potential of collaborative play as a route to innovation, a central tenet of Boyce’s practice.” In her installation, Sonia Boyce brings together five Black women musicians of different generations: Poppy Ajudha, Jacqui Dankworth, Sofia Jernberg, Tanita Tikaram and Errollyn Wallen. With her exhibition, Sonia Boyce has won the Golden Lion prize for Best National Participation at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.
