Enter a time capsule and find yourself in what purports to be a teenage girl’s bedroom in the 1970s.
Rifle through the piles of punk fanzines, fetish clothes, LPs, and teen magazines; take in the walls collaged with gig posters, pages torn from porn mags, and scrawled-over wallpaper; and snuggle down on the Sex Is No Emergency bed.
An accompanying sound installation fuses ‘70s pop tunes with a poetic reflection on the sexualisation of girl children. The work is both an exhibition of original pop / punk/ porn artefacts; and a reflection on the legacy of sexual abuse in the ‘70s, which the punk movement called out, parodied, and subverted.
Duration: 10 mins, one person at a time.
