_____Of the Future (Feminist) Housewife (2018)
In a memorial garden, against the backdrop of the London skyline : a small enclosure of bricks under a brick wall, with a pink dollhouse enclosed.
The floors of the house are dreamily dysfunctional : no beds, no kitchen, no toilet. Little figurines look out of the window. The earth has been recently churned.
Someone scribbled in black graffiti: “No prejudice”.
_____ Of the Future (Feminist) Housewife is a piece that was created following an interview with a sex worker. The works attempts to link two snippets from our conversation related to prejudice and personal dreams. In the words of curator Aubree Penney: “It addresses the prejudices which accompany women’s choice of labour — be it sex work, domestic work or otherwise. The work examines the moralising of desire, which is instilled even in childhood.”
Presented at the “Outside” Exhibition — for which artists were paired for interviews with sex workers — at Cross Bones Graveyard, London.
