Broadcasts: On Screen is now showing Quilla Constance 'Working Lunch' (2006).
Quilla Constance is an exoticized, punk-feminist performance persona, who is seen here quite literally putting on a performance to expose the performative nature of identity and power relations.
Humour and discomfort are employed defiantly in 'Working Lunch', to disrupt patriarchal frameworks and afford agency for her biracial, female identity position. DRAF Broadcasts: On Screen share a different work from the David Roberts Collection every two weeks, accompanied by a newly produced text.
You have until Wednesday 19 August to watch and read 👀 Head over to http://davidrobertsartfoundation.com/broadcasts.
