A Sense of Survival — an installation of sound and sculpture 

Working in collaboration, the artists Tessa Ann and Rosalind Lowry have researched historical and social records of Crumlin Road Gaol to create this new site specific work.

A Sense of Survival responds to the gaol environment and particularly to certain sections of inmates. Using sound and visual art the work refers to how the inmates responded to the fabric of the prison through their senses. The installation refers to the role of women in the gaol and their treatment.

Created as a tribute to the resilience of women and children in the prison system and the types of punishment given, the work also focuses on the soundscape of this prison system and the ability to survive using the senses to navigate the environment through auditory cues.

A Sense of Survival is running as part of the visitor experience tours.
