About this work


Your Den is double-sided two layer (or colour) risograph pamphlet printed on unbleached (off-white) recycled,​ uncoated 100-150gsm paper. It features five responses from chronically ill, shielding comrades to 'The Den 1', the first of a three part audio work, by Sop.

The Den is a series of meditative works in sound and other media that gather material from Sop's regular trips to their 'den'. As someone in the "clinically extremely vulnerable" category for coronavirus, Sop has been shielding. In response to circumstances during lockdown, they take solitary walks at dawn in a nearby wood and cemetery, socially distancing from all but the buried, rediscovering the healing power of nature. There they have made their own secret den, which has become a calm, nature refuge where they can hide in public and go 'off grid'.--Summarised from Artquest's website.

Biographical note

"Artist Sop explores alternative strategies for self-care during the Covid-19 pandemic through a series of meditative sound works. As someone in the "clinically extremely vulnerable" category, Sop was forced to shield during the pandemic. They narrate the process of building a secret den in a cemetery at the edges of a wood near where they live. The den provides a space for respite, deeply connected to nature: a structure of protection and safety in which to take shelter."--From Wellcome Collection's website.
