A Tale of Curses, Tyranny and Sorrow engages with the domestic and decorative traditions of Baroque tapestry and ceramics and the identity building impulses present in fantasy roleplaying practices, such as Dungeons and Dragons. The collapse of geek masculinity and historical, allegorical figuration in this exhibition interrogates the way we construct and deploy identities in our attempts to find solid ground in an indifferent and infinitely complex historical moment.
