BUT WHAT WAS MOST AWFUL WAS A GIRL WHO WAS SINGING
Transmission are pleased to present But what was most awful was a girl who was singing, the first solo exhibition of newly commissioned works by the artist Jamie Crewe (MFA 2015).
Incorporating text, video, drawing, sculpture and spatial interventions, Jamie's work is often generated from one or two significant reference points – plays, films, novels and more, which are revisited and mobilised in strange ways. The aesthetic and political qualities of these sources, and particularly references to the gay male cultural canon, are considered from a transfeminine position which Jamie describes as ‘both critical and complicit’; fuelled both by the urge to trace histories, identities, communities and desires, and by the urge to uproot them.
