Lydia McGlinchey / FERAL
FERAL is a series of staged landscapes charged with the glamorous, the feral, the horrific, the absent, the semi-present. These landscapes and their inhabitants contradict and complicate savage/civil, pure/obscene, natural/synthetic, human/animal, present/non-present, the felt and the produced. They refuse a body's presupposed neutrality; consider the naturalising effect of landscape media. The scenography is composed of textile pieces, woven to texture and form the space, inspired by swamp and desert.
Emerging, bleeding, presenting, obstructing, toning, exposing, touching the skin of.
"In the spirit of experiment, these approaches attempt to create new spaces for thinking about and imagining what might be going on" - Kathleen Stewart
