Hungry for evidence from what is underneath the canonical re-telling of histories. Hungry Is My Favourite Word invites to fantasise about the past, future and present. How can we relate to the obscured past in which marginalised existences have been neglected? Weaving together references of historical role models, ephemeral gestures, more recent pop-cultural moments and contemporary visual culture, the exhibition creates an emotional landscape that constantly evolves. There is not one truth, nor one answer and there is no last word.
