THIS IS A VOICE
The voice is shapeless and immaterial, and yet fills up an entire gallery in Wellcome Collection’s major spring exhibition. ‘This is a Voice’ looks inside vocal tracts, restless minds and speech devices to capture the elusive nature of the human voice, from its origins within the body, to the sounds ringing in our heads. Celebrating the aural and the oral, ‘This is a Voice’ features daily ‘voicings’, live performances and demonstrations, creating an acoustic journey of sound and film by contemporary artists and composers, punctuated by paintings, manuscripts, medical illustrations and ethnographic objects.
