‘Interior Monologues’ is an exhibition and zine publication highlighting the work of 7 artists and 8 writers all working in response to artworks selected from the USW museum status, art collection.
The title of the exhibition is a play on words meaning both a person’s inner voice and the personal truths revealed through choices of interior décor. Just as with the clothes we wear so much is revealed about our character through the way we decorate and furnish our homes indicative of social status, taste, anxieties and aspirations. As a literary device the Interior monologue creates a window into the mental processes of a character at the stage of precognition before the formation of coherent sequential speech.
The project invites creative writers from the USW English department to contribute stream of consciousness writing to juxtapose with the images contained in the exhibition.
