Small Promethean Acts is a project by Delpha Hudson that celebrates invisible domestic acts. Through sculptural installation combined with sound, it aims to collect and share short stories of the smallest acts of care that make a big difference to other’s lives.


A temporary experimental exhibition for 2 days only. Join us for the Friday opening 5-8pm and on Saturday 13th July 10-4pm with an invitation to share and record your own domestic acts of caring.

The everyday lives of mothers and carers involve Promethean acts that go unnoticed and this project is a small tribute to incidental acts we perform for each other. A critical mass of accumulated small domestic objects and tiny gestural clay figures are combined with voice recordings of everyday incidental care in order to represent invisible acts of caring and domesticity. 

Delpha Hudson is a multi-media artist based in Cornwall whose interdisciplinary practice encompasses painting, sculpture, film, sound and performance. Over the last 20 years her practice has used combined media to re-represent women and mothers.
