Mixed media installation, 2018

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, in a time of post-truth and the curtailment of the citizen’s right to inhabit the world freely, what better moment to revisit Virginia Woolf’s Orlando, her love letter to freedom and transformation. Writer Olivia Laing and artist Sarah Wood have collaborated to create a wide-open territory for the merging of history, gender, politics and future possibility.
