The Architecture of Anxiety

Folkestone Fringe Push/Pull for Folkestone Triennial

Whilst the historic assumption that man builds and woman inhabits is gradually eroded, artists & feminists must still negotiate the physical, political and personal environments it has engendered. “The Architecture of Anxiety”  employs feminist strategies to explore the psychophysical experience of the uncertainty of space and imagine a new architecture.

Curated by Cherry Truluck, The Architecture of Anxiety is an intensive programme of research through practice in partnership with Folkestone Fringe. The focal exhibition at 27 Guildhall Street brought together work by artists Sarah Baxter, Nicola Hunter, Alberta Jones, Emily Speed, Lucy Thane, Cherry Truluck and The Folkestone (Summer) School of Economics to explore feminist interactions in space through the various lenses of body politics, mental health, architectural design, food, protest and the economy.


Red Door Studios

ReACT: When Live Art Met Brexit at a Music Festival, was a one day festival at Red Door Studios in London,  devised by Lucky Bert in response to the EU referendum, followed by a 5 day supporting programme of events.  It included an immersive installation by Lucky Bert, live music and spoken word performances and a group exhibition of artists responses in miniature – each one a “Riot in a Jam Jar” – inspired and supported by Jimmy Cauty.
