This project is an exploration of the various communities and dialogues that the Catholic Church has attempted to silence over the history of its existence. Each image is open to a variety of possible readings, depicting a conflictual relationship between the priest and the other subjects in the image. Issues of gender, sexuality, race, culture, abuse and power are offered up in the images for examination. The church continues to attempt to stifle discourse around the place of women in the church, sexuality and the legacy of religious colonialism.
Silenced was a collaboration: Pavla Ondrova, Robert Downes, Rob Sibley and Kun Song
Exhibited at Atrwall:Link exhibition in Prague in 2012.
