Unsettle

Unsettle is an exhibition of new sculptural and installation works by three queer artists Liam Colgan, Kate Power and Derek Sargent. Unsettle examines how these different artists problematize current notions of sexuality and additionally inspect the dialogue between sexuality and ‘spatial’ art practices.

Philosopher Michel Foucault’s investigation into sexuality served as the catalyst for this exhibition. Foucault argues that the word ‘sexuality’ gives us a ground on which to fight on behalf of our “homosexuality”. He poignantly states: “it is not enough to liberate sexuality; we also have to liberate ourselves… from the very notion of sexuality”. This quote raises a critical challenge: how can we extend beyond ‘sexuality’ without using the language related to it?
