Ultimate Fantasies _
Curated by Jennifer Boyd and Ruta Dumciute, Guest Projects, East LondonJune 2018
Ultimate Fantasies was a project exploring the force of desire by Jennifer Boyd and Ruta Dumciute, and collaborators Leyla Pillai, Eunjung Kim, Madeleine Stack and P0$$€.
What happens when desire - in the widest sense - is permanently inhabited, rather than a quick gesture or quashed longing towards a thing or person or life that you want?
This project understands the force of desire as a non-normative notion of total commitment. Inspired by figures in art and music who have refused to compromise, this project explores fantasies of the ‘ultimate’ and how these might manifest intensely refreshed and flavour enhanced in sculpture, space, sound, performance and text.
