A Dorm Room for a Feminist City?
East Street Arts, Leeds, October 2020
Collaboration with Jon Orlek, Director of Studio Polpo.
Together we bid to design a feminist dorm room for East Street Arts. We proposed to design an immersive installation for one of the dorm rooms, which doubles as a resource for feminist explorations of Leeds. The feminist dorm room is all about choice. The room will create different options and choices for guests—accepting and playing on ideas of privilege and (partial/subjugated) perspective. How do we create a space which allows for choice and preference?
Created with a feminist agenda this is a proposal for a mixed gendered dorm in which all genders would be welcomed to inhabit and domesticate their temporary environment —supporting opportunities for guests to retreat alone or commune with others.
