Sound Installation
Vulnerable is a collection of 142 exchanges with participants telling the artist how to pronounce ‘vulnerable’ properly.  The work reflects upon the relationship between language, power structures, social mobility and vulnerability and it was made in response to the hate crime killing of Polish man Arkadiusz Jozwik on 27th August 2016 in Harlow, shortly after the Brexit vote.
