An online live performance art work that took time to acknowledge and reflect upon the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Since November 2019, millions of people all around the world have been affected by Covid-19 and hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost. Governments have taken unprecedented steps to reduce the spread of the virus. including; strict social distancing measures and enforced lockdowns.

The devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has left people around the work with collective experiences of loss, trauma and grief.

Reflection was a 9 hour durational work that took place over social media. It took time to consider the many lives that have been lost and the many lives that have been affected by Covid-19. It took time for introspection and time to consider how one might be able to support other in this difficult period in human history.

Commissioned by Heart of Glass as part of HomeWork, with support from Cultural Hubs Art Programme – St Helens Libraries, The Bluecoat, Knowsley Council, Rule of Threes, Sefton Council, Human Library, The Atkinson, Halton Borough Council and Culture Liverpool.

Reflection was also nominated by Leman Sevda Daricioglu to feature in the PerformIstanbul Stay LIVE at Home project.
