Female Executioner is the first solo exhibition at Gasworks, London by Glasgow-based artist Jamie Crewe.
Comprising newly commissioned video, sculpture, print, and text-based works, the exhibition focuses on French writer Rachilde’s Monsieur Venus: A Materialist Novel. Exploring what is at stake in historical reclamation, Female Executioner investigates what happens when a queer, transfeminine artist tries to touch, reflect on, or rehabilitate an historical work of fiction which seems to offer them ancestry.
