Unspeakable Freedom >> Tastes Like Chicken


From 23rd September – 21st October 2016, Block 336 will show a major installation by Jennet Thomas, featuring her magnum opus The Unspeakable Freedom Device as well as Animal Condensed >> Animal Expanded, the first in a trilogy of new works exploring the meaning of animals in a post-digital and post-anthropological world.
Originally commissioned by Grundy Art Gallery, The Unspeakable Freedom Device combines a number of interconnected multimedia and sculptural elements and paints a picture of an absurd primitive-future world populated by a cast of uncannily familiar characters. Its narrative shadows two women who wrestle with the fascination and threat of techno-totalitarian supremacy personified by the all-powerful Blue Lady. Thomas' powerful portrayal is as formidable as the histories it prophesizes and its timely creation couldn't be more fitting against the backdrop of today's political unconscious.
