In Her Interior (Francesca da Rimini and Virginia Barratt)
In 2015 In Her Interior (IHI) began co-creating live works of spoken/sung and recorded text and video within site-specific installation environments. As an unfaithful follower of constraint-based experimentation across various art traditions, IHI’s work often involves accomplices – the land
and its inhabitants, local knowledge custodians, sound artists, sculptors, printmakers, birdwatchers, writers, philosophers, gleaners. The themes that engage us include collaboration and sympoiesis, climate change, mutual aid, alternatives to capitalism, narrative experimentation, intersectional critiques of systemic oppression. IHI has performed in galleries,
performance spaces, repurposed industrial settings and academic environments—in Helsingør, London, Berlin, New York, Adelaide, Byron Bay, Sydney, Melbourne, and Graz. Collaborations include B.A.B.S., The Darkening: Language lined with flesh lined with language, Songs for
Skinwalking the Drone (a commissioned libretto), Hexing the Alien, echolalia: golden iterations, Xenoblood, The Tender Alembicians Suite, a mouth swallowing the storm and Tell me what you see outside.
