Kristin McIver’s exhibition ‘Status Quo’ at James Makin Gallery.
Status Quo explores the notion of identity as commodity. The exhibition continues McIver’s exploration of consumer identity in the era of hyper-capitalism. The work in the exhibition (predominantly in neon, steel and concrete), transposes digital subject matter into physical objects to highlight the tangible economic value placed on our thoughts and desires.

‘In the middle of nowhere lies a unique boarding institution for girls. Here, in this idyllic refuge, cut off from the outside world, a group of young girls study ballet and biology. We watch as they’re groomed for an unknown future.’
