VIVID LIVE is excited to announce two new commissions by artists Priya Saujani and Grace A Williams to be exhibited as part of SYN at Vivid Projects on Digbeth First Friday.


SYN pronounced ‘Sin’ is the goddess of defensive refusal in Norse Mythology, "she guards the doors of the halls and shuts them against those who are not to enter" (Snorri Sturluson, Gylfaginning). Both Priya Saujani and Grace A Williams explore the dynamics of female empowerment, resistance and violence through the iconography of the mythical, offering a confrontational interrogation of stereotypes relating to the sinning female body.


Priya Saujani’s new work 'Forbidden Fruit' weaves a narrative of sexual freedom vs. sexual violence and social etiquette in Indian communities through photography, poetry and performance; exploring thoughts on the Indian female body throughout art and history.


Grace A Williams commission ‘Maiden Voiced’ takes the allegory of the sea siren as a subversion of female silencing presenting a performative transmission of voice through sound.

Welcome to the temple of the goddess and the whore.

Join the congregation. There will be rites of passage, meetings with the Goddess in an exchange at the ultimate height of love. As either participant or onlooker they welcome you.

The Whore dances the motions of life, lost in repetition. The Goddess on a higher mantel looks over to her muse and consort, as the time of the Whore is only how the Goddess achieves all her lessons and learns of life and woes.

This is a ritualistic performance by Priya Saujani and Kate Spence, distant Sisters who work collaboratively from intuition based on visions.

Priya Saujani and Kate Spence are two live artists working with the alter-feminine as a way of integrating feminine sexuality into powerful works, that confront the audience with their own perceptions, projections, fears and desires.

Live Art Brothel Collective Unconscious with Priya Saujani The Live Art Brothel is open for business! Choose one from a range of delicious one to one performances for your sensuous pleasure.


Exploring themes of intimacy, sexuality and power Collective Unconscious and Priya Saujani welcome you to our netherworld. So rubber-up and come on in. We will tease and delight you and then send you back into the night, weeping, with your pants around your ankles.


Collective Unconscious are a live art company based in Worcester who make immersive performances that question the manner by which we interact with each other in everyday reality.


London-based performance artist Priya Saujani works with the condition of gender and its appearance, the tension of national identity and a kind of alter-feminism through the ‘provocative’ scenario. Her work finds root in engineered live art situations that highlight her biography through an interstice of inverted cultural stereotype, knowing, unknowing and intimacy.
