Catherine Shaw spent the 90s shocking the art world withher provocative performance art.She’salwayscalledherself a feminist, but looking back through the lens of #MeToo,she’squestioning how much she enabled the culture she now seesbeingcalled out.
An ambitious Curator approaches her to put togetheran exhibition of female Artists at a major new gallery; a scandal breaks andunwittingly caught in the centre, she begins to question everything.When men behave in unacceptable ways, why do we always point to the women close to them and ask why they did nothing?
Can we, and should we, separate the art from the artist? How far do the ripples of consequence spread? And why is it always women who must hold the moral space?“ I’m tired, I’m tired of trying to play the system, I’m tired of trying to fight the system and I’m tired of feeling tired about it.
”‘Indestructible’ takes in uncompromising female Artists,from Lee Miller to the Guerrilla Girls via Sinead O’Connor and Taylor Swift, to ask:why is it still so difficult for female Artists to succeed? And why are womenalways the Muse, never the Artist?A highly visual and fiercely theatrical show from award-winning Proteus that questions whether we can or should, separate the art from the artist.
