We Find The Body Difficult To Speak is an installation and performance based on a series of text scores by Patrick Farmer and Sarah Hughes. The realisation of the scores involves sound, video and performance works – all of which have been produced in and around Grizedale Forest.

The exhibition builds on the recently published book Yew Grotesque by Patrick Farmer. The book is a text-based engagement with listening written in response to walking at Grizedale and a series of residencies in the forest.

The residency and publication were made possible through a partnership between Forestry Commission England and Sound and Music.
