Challenger’s venue-wide exhibition combines participatory sculptural objects with digital projection and a small farm.
Concerned with mass objectification of the self, the artist asks us to join her in questioning the level of control being wielded by a supposedly ‘free’ environment like the internet. Themes of habitual performance, viral infiltration and feminine identity link earlier forms of human control by pseudo-sexual torture (exacted upon women who asserted their individuality) with cultural homogenisation on a global scale.
This exhibition premieres new works developed by Tamsyn Challenger during the artist’s residency with Beaconsfield since June 2012.
Monoculture expands beyond the galleries and works on the public in a truly viral way through online interaction and a series of related time-based events off-site.
The Monoculture exhibition opening event forms part of the South London Art Map LAST Fridays late openings: http://www.southlondonartmap.com
