Rituals of Loneliness

Rituals of Loneliness is a collection of newly commissioned digital artworks by artists Shonagh Short, Linda Stupart and Ayesha Tan Jones, created in collaboration with a group of adults and young people from Liverpool.

Meeting and working together on Zoom, the group shared their personal tactics to defeat lockdown and celebrate the new rituals we all performed, from clapping on Thursdays, to fermenting and living room dancing.

The artworks reflect on the rituals that have made us feel more connected to the world around us during the past year of isolation. What have we done that has made us feel less lonely? What have we shared? What things did we choose to protect? What have we lost? What have we learnt?
