This work initiates and ongoing navigation into concepts of facsimile within a queer reading of domesticity in relation to capitalism and gentrification. The intention with this project is to begin an exploration into emotional states of being expressed within architecture, simulacra and mimetic rivalry. In doing so this project is intended to layout a personal groundwork for the cultivation of queer theories in relation to the built space of language as well as the poetic space of architecture and how these forms manage bodies within our environment.
The Ouroboros in the Cul-de-Sac (Part 1) was a performance produced over the course of a one week residency at clearview Ltd., London. The inclusion of “Part 1” within the title of this iteration indicates that this is an ongoing project manifesting in episodic sequence of writings, performances and exhibitions as the research into these themes begins to evolve.
