(re)collecting (f)ears is a series of site-specific performances at fallen sound mirrors across the Kent coast. These sonic remains are physical manifestations of pre-war tensions and fears – initially built to provide defence, they are now succumbing to elemental erosive forces along the coasts of England. As relics of an early warning system that never came to fruition, their failure to serve their intended function could be seen to occupy the space of a fossilised mourning for a future that never came.

Could these visible fallen silenced concretions of fears and longing (for protection) help us open up the conversations around the cyclical and tidal nature of our histories and help us think about new ways of being and belonging that are built on difference and diversity?

In her work Selina uses artefacts, unwanted hand me downs, worthless heirlooms that carry value through meaning, action and ‘rememberings’ (offered memories) and the language of performance to interrogate meaning, power and our collective social realities.

The project has been beautifully & sensitively documented by videographer Matt Mahoney-Page and photographers Ana Escobar and Andrea Abbatangelo - and publication contributors include performance-writers: Rubiane Maia, Benjamin Sebastian, Helen Davison, Oliva Furber, Daniella Valz Gen, Madeline Hodge, Joseph Morgan Schofield & Bean.
