Talitha Klevjer, Zoe M. Robertson and Giselle Stanborough
As you may well be aware "petite mort" or "small death" (my translation) is the French euphemism for the female orgasm.
Though art need not be either defecatory, nor an embodiment of wasted ejaculate or the opposing menstrual tissue, language thus forces us to anthropomorphise generic expressions of our basic difference of opinion regarding roles passively imposed by the body politic, which engender the feminine as THE political body (the vessel for the ejaculate). While recycling such terminology we also wish to maintain our own awareness that the language itself is powerful only insofar as it is adopted as another arbitrary assertion of empiricism and the observation of other creatures. Even so, in line with the equalisations taking place in art by the beneficiaries of recent capitalist development, we wish to register the distinction between the masculine "genius" and the feminine "synthesis" where apparently enfranchisement as the so empowered "other" (them what are empowered as an alternative and so subsumed by a system of ludicrous architects) we must collectivise as the white female distraction from countless real wrongs where there is no place for us to behave "like men" as we are frequently told that we do.
LOOSE BUT NOT VAGUE OUTLINE:
Talitha Klevjer will be dealing in the sculptural realm with works pertaining to the phrenological, utilising men's clothing and body odour. Zoe M. Robertson is interested in creating a sound/prose poetry performance in the foreground in front of 55, to be accompanied by large scale wax anatomical foetuses. Giselle Stanborough will be making an animated digital collage with performative elements looking at techno-fetishism and the erotica of touch screens. (Sculpture/video/performance). All three will also be collaborating on a self-reflexive critical artwork accompanied by a home brew orgy.
WRITTEN ON VALENTINE'S DAY 2013.
PROPOSED DATE: May 2013 (negotiable).
