Call For Participants - UNSUNG SONGS by Silvia Ziranek

Matt’s Gallery and Silvia Ziranek are looking for women aged 18 and over living and working in or connected to Wandsworth to take part in a series of workshops leading to a recording session, a public performance in Wandsworth, and the production of a vinyl record.

We are looking for bold and sensitive women who want to take part in UNSUNG SONGS, a creative project culminating in a performance and the production of a pink vinyl record. The 'songs' take the form of spoken word; participants will read the words aloud but no actual singing is required.

We are hosting a series of trial workshops which will allow you to explore the material, try out some voice exercises, meet the artist and for participants to be selected. These are free to attend with no commitment at all. Following on from the workshops, a group of women will be invited to participate in the final recording and performance of the songs.

We hope the sessions will build confidence and provide a safe and comfortable environment for women to come together to meet people, relax and make friends. Sharing is welcome but we respect your right to keep your private and personal history private and personal.


For more information, please email Tess, or call 020 7237 0398 for further information.

Matt’s Gallery at Nine Elms is funded by Bellway, in agreement with Wandsworth Council as part of their Section 106 commitments.

Matt’s Gallery is generously supported by Arts Council England.

In 2014 director Robin Klassnik was awarded an OBE, in recognition of his contribution to contemporary art in the country. Matt’s Gallery is currently based in Bermondsey and will move to Nine Elms in 2020.

Silvia Ziranek is an artist, best known for her performance work. At its simplest she walks, talks, and tends to dress up. Her work is generally very verbal, very visual; she creates rich environments in which she reads her carefully prepared texts.
