Soft Things

A newly commissioned set of twin ultra-short films by Sarah Boulter, with a sound piece by Manchester based Musician Merida Richards. Video works that centre on gorging for escapism, consumerism and the escapism that has sprouted from pandemic obsession and limitations, as we pour ourselves into repetitive entertainment.

Deviant Diners

‘Deviant Diners’ is a newly commissioned video work that sets the table for bad manners, caters to the neuroqueer gaze, and serves an insight into autistic experiences of food. This work addresses the stigma autistic people face at the dinner table. This stigma, combined with sensory processing issues, can lead autistic people into withdrawing from social situations involving food and even develop avoidant, restrictive or disordered relationships with food.
