Thicker than Blood is a biopolitical live art evening and exhibition that explores the formation of systemic hierarchy through the lens of the fetish. By placing the body as the site from which identity is institutionally recognised, artists Izdehar Afyouni and Raymond Jennings aim to raise to the level of public recognition the ways in which blood itself is used to build the borders, both physical and social, that divide us.
Blood is a vessel through which distinctions are made, groups are devised, and ties thicker than blood itself are formed. We are not seen for what we are; we are seen for what our blood is worth.
Taking place at the Flying Dutchman in Camberwell on Tuesday 28th March, the event will feature live performances from Glitterasphyxia, Jessica Worden, Natalie Wearden and Lizzie Masterton as well as a exhibition entitled Face/Off featuring paintings by artists Sam Creasey, Victoria Suvoroff, Izdehar Afyouni and Kate Kelly. The event will be soudtracked by Techno DJ and founder of livenowsleeplater, Miss Wanna. The exhibition is free, with a donation policy.
