The Sighs (Ros Bason and Frances Williams, 2019) is a multi-media immersive installation for all, including pups, to sit, stand and sigh…‘emit a long audible breath expressing sadness, relief, tiredness or similar…’, a gentle shelter in the middle, away from the outside. This installation was  built in the Fish Factory installation space in Penryn. Prompted by Dario Argento’s 1977 Italian supernatural horror Suspiria and Thomas De Quincey’s essays, Suspiria de profundis, in particular Levana and Our Ladies of Sorrow, where De Quincey imagines three companions for Levana, the ancient Roman goddess of childbirth, including Mater Suspiriorum, Our Lady of Sighs as well as Mater Lachrymarum, Our Lady of Tears, and Mater Tenebrarum, Our Lady of Darkness. This installation was our joyful celebration of sorrowful sighs
