You are warmly invited to join the radical salon of ‘look what the cat dragged in’.
Over the course of 2 nights, this experimental and site-specific event invites 11 artists to occupy the rooms of a private house located in West London with performance, sculpture, installation and video works.
This domestic space, both grand and kitsch, is loaded with representations linked to the feminine, heteronormative family values, and upper-class privilege. In an attempt to create a “détournement”, the artists will respond to the place to disrupt and question its normative power. Coined by Guy Debord and the Situationists, ‘détournement’ refers to a method of “highjacking” or subverting an existing cultural product or concept to turn it against itself.
