This Is An Anarcha-Feminist Takeover

On Tuesday I had my first solo art exhibition opening night. I didn’t officially invite any press, so it was fairly quiet, but enough folk came that I felt reassured by my poster and social media advertising.

I sold two embroidery pieces on the opening night and some zines and merch (there’s badges, bracelets, postcards, and various other things). I read a little bit of poetry, but it wasn’t really the right atmosphere and I felt a little awkward imposing myself audibly on people when I was already subjecting them to my visual art.

Anyway, here’s some photos. The exhibition is on at the Fine Roots Gallery in the basement of the Forest Cafe on 141 Lauriston Place, Edinburgh until October 2. I’m hoping to hitchhike down tomorrow to check on the show and do some filming for Zine There Done That with Fergus.

Greyscale. A large piece of cloth with cloth capital letters sewn onto it, reading "this is an anarcha-feminist takeover."Greyscale. A shot of a room in which there is a small tent. There is a sign on the wall that reads "Should we start a squat?" two chairs, an assortment of feminist signs on the wall that read "fuck the patriarchy," "riots not diets," "feminist," and the anarcha-feminist symbol. There is bunting hanging from the ceiling that reads "artificial womb" with a letter on each triangle. A stand-up sign reads "performance 6:30/7:30pm BYOB."
