Bridging the Silence

Bridging the Silence is a visual and sound installation designed to be shown on a pedestrian bridge, created by Hrvoslava Brkušić, Croatian multimedia & sound artist; Deirdre Cartmill, N. Irish poet, and Beatriz Churruca, Basque visual artist & Performer.

It focuses on representing the emotional journey survivors move through as they pass from the storm inside to peace. Crossing the bridge therefore becomes both a symbolic and literal reflection of this inner journey.

The sound installation uses personal testimonies from survivors at its heart. The installation will change and grow as it moves from city to city, collecting new stories.

A visceral experience of sounds, testimonies, music, poems; and oneself’s silence…
