Playground of Failure, Bad Jokes and Other Forms of Resistance
This practice-led project explores the lengths that failure can be used as a sculptural tactic. The modalities of failure and success are positioned as examples of dualistic norms that create prejudice and competitive expectations. Installation practices explore the potential of failure through the relationships between objects, material, and action. Utilising an amateur methodology and provisional methods that celebrate failure, possibilities of refusal against normal modes of value arise. Through strategies of repetition, diagrams, queering, and play, I have explored the potential of labour, failure, and humour as forms of resistance to heteronormative value production.
