An art exhibition, which hopes to get people talking about a variety of hard-hitting subjects, has opened at Diss Corn Hall.

Chat Room, which is open until March 26, features work from artists about the normalisation of violence, race, religion, veganism and animal rights, as well as sex work and prostitution.

Artist and curator Elizabeth Seymour said: “Listening to viewers’ responses is one of the most important and exciting parts of my practice.

“The purpose of my work is to encourage thought and discussion about topics I am concerned about.

“I feel as though my work is not complete until it is reacted and responded to.”

Each featured artist has come up with a question, which sits alongside their piece in the gallery, with viewers invited to respond by writing on sticky notes and displaying them on the wall.

Entry to the exhibition is free.
