Savoy | The Restoration was selected for the first Foto Industria Bologna biennial in October 2013 (www.fotoindustria.it). Foto Industria, Bologna 13 was directed by François Hébel, Director of the Rencontres de la Photographie exhibitions, Arles.
The series was exhibited as an 8-minute projection, with sound commissioned by SDD and produced by Sovra Wilson-Dickson.
Siobhán describes working with Sovra as ‘a joy’, adding: ‘I compiled a number of classical pieces that I liked, and which I felt best portrayed the feeling I wanted my sitters to experience’. Several reiterations followed, but the final piece encapsulated the mood of the journey that Siobhán had taken over the 3-year documentation project. She felt that adding music to these photographs elevated the series to a new level of experience.
