MISSES EVERYTHING stems from a year-long conversation between Georgia Lucas-Going and curator Katie Simpson, in collaboration with The Women’s Art Library at Goldsmiths, responding to how we can thrive through everyday acts of resistance. Focusing on group chats, facetime and site specific methods of working, the exhibition seeks to address power dynamics within the institution and continues Lucas-Going’s dismantling of hierarchies and boundaries within materials, language and space. MISSES EVERYTHING prioritises making space for hidden or undocumented conversations whilst coping with homesickness, thinking about death as a way to live and the result of not being around the ones that make us feel at home. By considering gossip and listening as being deeply rooted in community and self building, Lucas-Going reclaims territory abandoned by the institution, and utilises disruption in a public space as an act of sharing work with a choice of entering the gallery space or not.
What is the first thing you would say seeing someone come back from the dead?
'Oh my god’.
