NOT AT HOME — the waiting room, is an archive of testimony of women who have made this journey. Since April 2016, we have been collecting anonymous testimonies from women online. We now have a crowd sourced text of women’s experiences travelling abroad. In June 2017, we visited BPAS Merseyside in Liverpool. From these texts and our experience of re-creating this journey, we will create a durational art work at NCAD Gallery in September, featuring video, sound installation and live performance. The piece is grounded in the artistic intention is to attempt to collect, represent and make visible every story, every experience of those 163,514 women. That is our task for the process and the performance. We will continue to gather stories, and women will be able to contribute their story to the archive at the installation.
NOT AT HOME is a durational art campaign by Emma Fraser (Nine Crows) & Grace Dyas (THEATREclub) to make visible the experiences of women who travel abroad to access safe abortion services, to highlight the consequences of Ireland’s abortion laws and to connect women who have travelled in solidarity.
