What Would A Feminist Methodology Sound Like?
There are many feminisms, and many speaking for feminism. Instead of looking for answers, or speaking for women, we have some questions for feminism coming from within systems of sonic affect, or using sound as an acoustic mirror for society.

FM[X]?: What Would A Feminist Methodology Sound Like?

Liquid Architecture is proud to present four nights of performances, talks, interactions and more by women artists at West Space. All welcome to come, listen, dance, chill, and be a part of this evolving conversation.  FMX is amplified by a sound system designed, built and generously loaned by Lucreccia Quintanilla.

Dates: August 28, September 4, September 11, September 18

There are many feminisms, and many speaking for feminism. Instead of looking for answers, or speaking for women, we have some questions for feminism coming from within systems of sonic affect, or using sound as an acoustic mirror for society. Questions like, how is music one of the desire industries? How do everyday practices and cultures of hearing work to police some utterances but not others? Baffling, muffling and amplifying: What is emitting the noise that is in itself a silence? Can lower frequency listening help us to hear how power works on and through us sonically? What tones, what attunement is required if we want to do this? And what volume?

August 28: Rapture
more info and documentation

Rapture is the title of our first night, the commencement of proceedings, the firing of the first salvo – our opening celebrations. Rapture feeds on the intensity of women’s experience under white patriarchy, using the conditions that perpetuate domination to enable us to collectively imagine the sounds of its dismantling.

September 4: Erotics of Silence
more info and documentation

“There are many kinds of power, used and unused, acknowledged or otherwise. The erotic is a resource within each of us…firmly rooted in the pwoer of our unexpressed or unrecognised feeling.” (Audre Lorde). Tonight we give voice to the suppressed sources of power with us that can provide the energy for noise, heat, light, change.

QWE3NZ
Gabi Briggs’ work QWE3NZ: a disruption and reoccupation of  the colonial fantasy is installed in the Front Space gallery for the duration of the show.
“Indigenous women have involuntarily occupied archival imagery conducive to the colonial fantasy – imagery that transmits colonial notions and ideas of the noble savage, the exotic and of a white Australia. I have explored archival imagery with the intent of decentering the colonial male gaze and to bring into question the ambiguous absence/presence of Indigenous women within the dominant Australian narrative.

Through the use of performance and my own body, video and projection, I have authored a counter-fiction to the colonial fantasy. It is navigated by my own narrative as an Indigenous woman with the intent of decentering  the male colonial gaze, regaining ownership and autonomy of my positioning within the national imaginary produced by archival imagery.” — Gabi Briggs, 2015
