About the Event
In 2011 Victoria created The Butter Piece from an interest in female sexuality, the ‘invisible’ sexual responses of women and shame. In celebrating these reactions, the piece also considered how the female body is displayed, endurance and how we ‘manage’ our comfort with ourselves by engaging or disengaging with the materiality of our bodies.
The Butter Piece was presented both as a live performed action and a durational work.
Now in 2021, Victoria will reinhabit the piece to see what a difference a decade has made both to her body, the context in which it is viewed and to investigate how you deal with your own archive.
Alongside the performance, audience members will have access to 'Pushing Butter', Victoria's open journal documenting the re-making of the work and contributions from other body inspired artists.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
