Denise Sauls’ Silent Room is a video open installation and a reflection of the speech disability called aphasia. It occurs when the communication centres of the brain are damaged, often caused by stroke. Silent Room invites the audience to pay attention to mostly ignored experiences of speech disorder and consider how silence is a powerful theme in language breakdown. The project, funded by Arts Council England, is a collaboration between poet Denise Saul, film-maker Helmie Stil, writer Emma Claire Sweeney and individuals from Connect, a communication disability network. Connect’s staff will talk about the charity’s work at this event.
