The Search (2010)

 

The Search V Lucaslg

 

Made as part of Project Swap at The Hepworth Wakefield in response to Barbara Hepworth’s Mother and child (1934).

In The Search, the artist and her two siblings strive to replicate the sound of their mothers laugh; a sound that they have not heard for seven years since her death. Through their own inherited voices, they repeatedly search for the correct sequence of sounds.
