GoRGE: your GLITTER addiction is destroying the environment
goRGE: Your GLITTER Addiction is Destroying the Environment is a satirical exhibition that portrays the façade of light heartedness. Beneath the facade, humour is used as a tool to address issues that we collectively face as a society. Its aim is to encourage the audience to use humour as a way to critically engage with art and other problematic situations.
The exhibition features a narrative film with a news reporter as the main protagonist. Through awkward and lightly humoured feelings, the film highlights how glitter itself is not entirely problematic. Instead, glitter is a product of the many standards women face that are transmitted through the platforms validated by our era of mass communication. Though problems are highlighted, the audience are also offered theory behind the reasons why we have an innate attraction to glittery substances and their shiny counterparts.
PERICLO is a platform for risk and experimentation in contemporary visual art. Initiated as part of Oriel Wrecsam’s exhibition programme in 2015, PERICLOhas since developed into an independent organisation, based within Glyndwr University’s School of Creative Arts.
PERICLO is kindly supported by Glyndŵr University, Oriel Wrecsam and THIS Project.
