Davison's practice occupies the moments where communication fails. By exploring live vocal sounds in conjunction with materials and in response to sites of architectural, ecological and socio-historic interest, they seek to share experiences of the queer(ed) body. They use the palpability of the voice and resonances of the body to find moments of connection outside of their self, with a desire to reach cathartic transformation by yielding to chaos and entanglement to find agency.

Helen has presented work nationally and internationally including: LATITUDES festival (Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia); Parlour Geometrique, Chiswick House (London, UK; Middlesbrough Art Weekender (Middlesbrough, UK); ‘'till Time is Through, ]Performance s p a c e[ (Folkestone, UK); Revolve Festival, Uppsala Konstmuseum (Uppsala, Sweden) and has been commissioned to write text responses to live performance works for MEANDER, PAErsche, Köln, Germany, (re)collecting (f)ears, Selina Bonelli and Salvage Festival, ]Performance Space[ and Writing Bodies, Tentacular Magazine.
