Peel Eezy

Peel Eezy is the collaborative practice of Gemma Crook and Mina Heydari-Waite. Together they have created a brand of future imaginary art institutions consisting of a collection of installations, art objects, performances, workshops, videos and printed matter. Crook and Heydari-Waite explore the ways in which artists and art institutions engage with narratives of market fundamentalism and consumer choice. Their work is an attempt to question ideas of cultural participation (and collaboration) in a consumer driven society.

Mina Heydari-Waite (b.1994) lives and works in Edinburgh, Scotland.

We Who Are About To...

Exhibition

We who are about to… takes its title from the 1976 feminist science fiction novel by Joanna Russ, whose story pivots on themes of inevitability and speculation, existence and meaning.

The project comprises a showroom, workshop, screening and discussion that consider visions of the future through the lens of feminist discourse. It examines how art can provide a productive, critical space where future visions can be rehearsed and offer different ways of seeing and understanding, helping us to reveal our present states.

The Showroom will be located at the Savoy Centre.
