198 Contemporary Arts and Learning is delighted to present 'PUKIJAM',

artist Jennifer Allen aka Quilla Constance (QC). QC’s multidisciplinary works transform the gallery at 198 CAL into a space where notions of cultural auth- enticity and taboo are challenged via a series of unexpected visual and aural combinations.

Quilla Constance, QC, is a satirical punk persona created, performed and deployed by Allen in order to locate a point of agency within the hegemonic framework of white phallocentric order.

As QC, Allen stages and virally inserts her artistic practice within pop culture, traversing music venues, forging protests and entering art galleries in order to emulate and critique the operations of these cultural zones. Here QC offers a raw and fresh frame through which Allen examines the construction of black female identities within contemporary British media culture.

Allen’s newly commissioned video piece, ‘PUKIJAM’ simultaneously deconstructs and reinforces notions of meaning and identity via a dystopian golliwog cakewalk. The performance is accompanied and interrupted by a montage of erotic media images, figurative objects and Allen’s mutant scat vocal set against a relentless electronic throb.

Other video works include ‘Happy Christmas Mom & Dad’ a transgressive piece which sees Allen allegedly perform a seductive dance as a gift for her parents on Christmas day, and ‘VJAZZLED’, a satire on the Essex lady garden beautification trend of Vajazzling.

The exhibition continues with vibrant sculptural costumes adorning large, exotic, acrylic on canvas abstractions.These conspire with the video works, inviting the viewer into a dialogue through which notions of cultural authenticity and the production of meaning are visibly contested.
