Dr Parveen Ali talks about her project Phoenix – an art installation exploring the psychological and physical impacts of domestic violence and abuse.
About the project
This vitally important art installation used ceramics to depict the impact of domestic violence and abuse (DVA). To create works that reflect the physical, psychological and emotional effects of DVA, artist Angie Hardwick collaborated with Dr Parveen Ali (Health Sciences School). In a series of consultations, survivors discussed those effects. The artworks incorporated their words, giving the installation a powerful immediacy which aimed to help raise awareness of DVA and give hope to others.
