An intimate evening of feminist cannibalism hosted around a circular dining table, premiered at Intermedia Gallery (CCA Glasgow) on the 17th of April 2019.
Eight women, alongside performance artist Liv Fontaine and myself as host, are invited to sit together, drink red wine and consume female authored art. In keeping with the decor, guests wear burgundy, pink or mauve toned attire.
The event consists of four courses: a starter of my written barf (published by PSS), followed by a screening of Carolee Schneemann’s Fuses and a digitalised version of Hot Readings by Erica Scourti. For dessert, a newly commissioned live performance I’m the People Pleaser, by Liv Fontaine, is served.
The work presented made use of appropriation and digestion as performative acts of self-construction, while investigating the eroticised female body. The event explored acts of hosting in the gap between art institution and domestic spaces, and the complicit agencies subtending female relationships.
