Deirdre Logue & Allyson Mitchell : I'm Not Myself at All (Paperback) (Heather Love & Sarah E. K. Smith)
about this item
With their exuberant revision of feminist and ****** horizons, the collaborative practice of Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell includes video, drawing, wallpaper, needlepoint, oversized soft-sculpture dolls, and green-screen performances. At turns playful and aggrieved, they sort through discarded feminist pasts, flirting with what curator Smith identifies as “potentiality, belonging and representation.” By summoning key feminist and ****** texts into conversation with familiar rhetoric and everyday life, their practice embodies a longing for a hard-fought idealized future. Logue and Mitchell are founders of Toronto’s Feminist Art Gallery which they describe as a “political potluck, free-schooling, backyard screening, axe grinding, directed reading, protest sign making, craft den, incantation, herbal tea and gluten-free muffin top artist talk sensation.” Both artists have gained international recognition for their solo artistic and activist achievements.
