We Speak Everywhere
Holly Davey’s photographic artwork sited within the grounds of Swansea Castle stems from her discovery that part of the castle tower was used as a dovecote. Davey uses the symbol of a dove representing peace, hope and divinity, to reconnect the castle with its past and the events it managed to survive.
Orchestrating a ceremonial dove release from within the castle, Davey captures the moment and presents us with a striking billboard image. Easily misunderstood as advertising within the context of the consumerism of the inner city, she gives the castle a new voice, allowing it to convey its message of history as well as reminding us to be mindful of our future.
