FFG: Exhibition

Fictional Final Goal was a mixed-media installation, exhibited in 2015 at Marsden Woo Gallery. The theme of the work is the search for a feminised approach to social and cultural resistance. Throughout the media, resistance to dominant ideologies (Capitalism, Democracy, and Christianity) is most frequently enacted by male protagonists. FFG opposes the overtly masculinised mode of anarchist behaviour, typified in popular culture by films such as Fight Club (2001), with a collection of feminised – but not feminist – tools for daily resistance. Its aim is to conjure a world where one woman decides to ‘take arms’ against societal expectations: manufacturing the tools she needs for her small acts of rebellion. The woman signals her rejection of societal norms by manipulating familiar or ‘homely’ materials.

Curated by Tessa Peters. Installed with Joanne Wardrop.
