Echoes of Isolation

Echoes of Isolation is a solo art exhibition on Spike Island which draws attention to the historical context of isolation on Spike Island, while also inviting reflection on the broader implications of isolation in contemporary society. The impact of isolation and displacement  has become all too relevant, particularly in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and  how it disrupted our lives and our sense of connection to others.. During the 1800s, Spike  Island was used as a convict depot and prison. Many of the prisoners were subjected to solitary confinement and it is estimated that  almost 1,200 convicts died on the island. This exhibition shines a light on these forgotten voices, exploring the emotional and psychological impact of isolation.
