Co-organised by Newgate Studio London, the exhibition places the ‘Young-Girl’ at the centre of Yorkson’s role-play, looking at consumerism’s colonization of human bodies and the products we’ve become. Informed by her research into the conditions of human beings in the era of post-capitalism, the work responds to the way the internet complicates the relationship between public and private; a transparent space for others’ gazing.
