Alex Turgeon’s queer reading of domesticity in The Ouroboros in the Cul-de-Sac (Part 1) performance at Clearview, Nov 18

17 November 2017

Alex Turgeon is presenting The Ouroboros in the Cul-de-Sac (Part 1) at London’s clearview on November 18.

The performance is taking place after a one-week residency in the Tottenham space that explored the concept of facsimile “within a queer reading of domesticity in relation to capitalism and gentrification.”

Turgeon’s work often focuses on emotional states of expression and where they are housed and cultivated through ‘architecture, simulacra and mimetic rivalry,’ as well as how this relates to the management of our bodies through various structures.

Curated by London’s clearview, the show included works by Simon Brossard & Julie Villard, free.yard, Monika Kalinauskaitė & Monika Janulevičiūtė, Kinke Kooi, Precious Okoyomon and Paul Purgas. The concept of Mothership is an attempt to create an exhibition that embodies “a launch rocket, a naval base, a shelter and a womb (a container and an impulse).”

The show is the first event of many to come and kicks off a series that will start over the summer in London, creating a “matrix of Mothership” through open discussions and collective working sessions. The programme will develop under the title ‘Equators of Bad Organisation.’ **

The Mothership group exhibition was on at Paris’ EXO EXO, running July 12 to 22, 2017.
