DESCRIPTION

Venue-wide exhibition. Monoculture, combines participatory sculptural objects and a small farm.

 

Challenger is concerned with mass objectification of the self and asks her audience 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.

 

Tamsyn Challenger has been in residence with Beaconsfield between June 2012 and February 2013. Monoculture expands beyond the galleries and works on the public in a truly viral way through online interaction and time-based events off-site.
