Join us for an artist talk from Liv Fontaine on Saturday 10th March over in Islington Mill’s common room, as part of the Beacons programme.
5pm sharp, free for all.
BYOB and food to share for a potluck dinner afterward.
Liv Fontaine presents the first screening of the COLD WHORE CRISIS – an accumulation of a project striving to explore sexual stereotyping and supposed shameful behaviours (in the most shameful of ways) set to the backdrop of a current nuclear war crisis – part autobiography/ part action and misadventure/ part rom-com/ part disaster.
After this cinematic presentation Liv will give an artist talk delving into ideas behind the project and her practice in a broader context which promises to be very juicy, just like a big beef steak.
Recurring themes within Liv’s work include inappropriate appropriations, expectations of shame, acceptance of shame, shame equivalency’s, the female voice, Stockholm syndrome, total hysteria, Monica Lewinsky, Greek Mythology, suburban dreams, cannibalism, baby making and never ending pleasure faking.
Liv’s work is currently showing at Caustic Coastal as part of Beacons | Flare.
