Elinor Speirs

Elinor Speirs performs at THE MARKS WE MAKE




Elinor Speirs was visiting her home country South Africa, when she approached StateoftheART Gallery in Cape Town to do something very different...

On the night of the gallery’s exhibition opening, she performed an improvised performance, created from her observation of the artworks. She had never seen the art before, and had never even been to the gallery.
Her music is a great way for blind or visually impaired communities to also share in and experience the wonderful artworks on show.
The audience and guests attending the event were quite blown away by her interpretation and the emotions she evoked. Watch the video above for a short snippet of the event, and this one for the full performance:
