Small Promethean Acts - Delpha Hudson and the Hypatia Trust



A tribute to women and mothers

Small Promethean Acts is a project that combines sculptural installation with sound. Celebrating invisible domestic acts, the project aims to collect and share short stories of the smallest acts of care that make a big difference to other’s lives.

Weaving stories and narratives between sculpture and sound to celebrate the invisible, incidental acts we perform for each other, recordings of short stories from mothers and carers represent their strength, resilience and potential.

Creating a critical mass of accumulated small domestic objects and tiny gestural clay figures combined with voice recordings of everyday incidental care presents stories that are never told or re-presented. The everyday lives of mothers and carers involve Promethean acts that are rarely noticed and the grotto like collection of figures with domestic objects, become small tributes on a unmonumental scale.

Current call out if you would like to contribute a short domestic story ( max 3 minute recording or 100 words)  SPA callout for stories
