Artist Cara Tolmie (born 1984, Glasgow) works from within the intersections of performance, music and moving image. Her works probe the site-specific conditions of performance-making by finding ways to vocalise and place her body that access the political and poetic capabilities of physical, written and musical languages. Recent performances, such as Till It Feels Alright (2015) and Incongruous Diva (2016) look more specifically at the affective economies that attach themselves to the role of ‘The Singer’. These works ask questions about whose emotions the singing voice acts as a locus for and tests ways that the performing body can disrupt the flows of value that profit from this voice.
