Sovay works in participatory and collaborative ways to approach important social themes. Her projects ask questions, seek alternative viewpoints, and forge new connections, resulting in work that is multi-layered and multi-faceted, yet accessible and relatable. Since 2022 she has been working on MESKLA | Brewyon Drudh, an Arts Council England-funded project exploring contemporary Cornish identity and culture, with an initial focused engagement with communities of Redruth.
Throughout the summer and early autumn 2023, Sovay will host workshops to make sculptures painted in colours that connect to participants’ identities, and to find the suitable Kernewek/Cornish language words for those colours. All of this will contribute to Sovay’s final exhibition at Flamm – featuring items made within the workshops, words of colours in Kernewek/Cornish language, and her first publicly exhibited film.
