For the penultimate leg of Foodhall's Social Sculpture series – highlighting art groups from within the Foodhall community – GRL. will be taking the reins for Infinite Space. They are creating a special exhibition reflecting on their collective’s progress.
In GRL.'s words:
“Influenced by the work of artist Rachael Kidd, Infinite Space explores ‘taking up space’: how our identities are articulated through physical and digital platforms. Working within phenomenological theory, what it is to be and to experience, to see as someone who is so rarely ‘seen’, the reflective structures allow for a repetition of the image, transforming the mirror from narcissistic symbol to a radical reclamation of the self.”
GRL. is a new Sheffield-based collective made up of women and non-binary DJs. Its members will present mixes, allowing for a dialogue to be opened up, and illustrating how collectives such as theirs allow for the assertion of an unapologetic presence within a male-dominated music scene; transforming the ideas of Infinite Space from purely theoretical to practically possible.
