Temple of Our Madness: Summoning is part one of a series of sound and object installations about women, animals and girls.
Summoning began as a conversation between myself and Rosemary Georgeson. We were interested in creating a a project about the lack of safety for Aboriginal women on the road. Specifically, we both felt a deep need to respond to the unsolved murders of Aboriginal and other women on the Highway of Tears in British Columbia, Canada.
When twenty-three year old physiotherapy student, Jyoti Singh Pandey, was gang-raped to death on a bus in India, my vision for the project began to expand with the hope to connect women across continents.
The project is envisioned as an interactive sound installation which, through artistic and community collaboration across race, class, nation and culture, will summon women's voices to create a spoken and sung invocation of female power.
Please explore this website to see who we are and how we hope to build the project.
And if you feel called to: participate.
