Shapes of Water, Sounds of Hope. Super Slow Way, Brierfield, Lancashire, United Kingdom 2016
Since March 2015 Lacy, developed a commission of Super Slow Way with Pendle artist collective In-Situ, activists Paul Hartley and Rauf Bashir, musicologist Ron Pen, and anthropologist Massimiliano Mollona. Suzanne worked closely with Pendle residents in a series of community meetings and singing sessions, exploring the history of the area, the former Smith & Nephew Mill and different vocal traditions that exist there. She brought people from all walks of life together to share food, culture and experiences; culminating in a mass community celebration at the former Smith & Nephew Mill in Brierfield with Shape Note singers and Sufi chanters. A video installation is planned with the SOUP Collective in Manchester.
