IMG_7449Police Cells, 'To be conceived'IMG_7373

Quick notes on Banu and Karen’s show. Original plans was to be ‘beyond binaries’, then expanded to include new images. Very successful show in fascinating and very cold, old Police cells. Wear warm clothing!
Many works link to wide and complex identities, asking why is ‘female/male’ significant at all? One video work uses a scrolling list of possessions as identity (including 4 girl guide badges, 2,345 toilet rolls, etc rather like a list of what Landy destroyed a few years back), another borrows parts of many identities to create bizarre but familiar faces, Zoe Clifford’s  puppet like Moggie wandering its own backstreets..
Closes 17th March.
