    Great UnwashedIf a subculture has never been part of society and, therefore, has never had the opportunity to resist or deviate from the mainstream, does that make it more or less authentic? If its politics, values and aesthetic do not come from real-world experiences does that make them culturally valueless or are they a pure form of authenticity. A subculture that has not existed has never had to face the prospect of being co-opted by the cultural industry, meaning that its defining characteristic can remai
  • Miedo Total presents: Antioch Rig
    Miedo Total presents: Antioch RigAntioch Rig is a sound installation and performance revolving around two central themes: ritual and voice. The piece is created using a combination of found, recorded and processed sounds, the majority of which originate from the human voice and taking influence from the practice of 'Sacred Harp singing': a form of choral performance which is participatory in its nature. Recordings of choir performances are taken and spliced to create staccato, arpeggiated sequences or completely rearranged to c

    Sound Artist/ProducerMiedo Total

    Great Unwashed (Installation)New Rosaries
     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    Concept, creation and execution of multimedia installation "Great Unwashed" at Lover Studios, London. An archival retrospective of a subculture that has never existed. The exhibition will bring together material from various facets of the fictitious community; the exhibition presents photos of individuals, historical footage, mannequins in clothing and masks of the subcultural style, zines and other printed material published by the subculture, and posters/fliers/documents from fabricated occasions, as well as a live ceremonial event, entirely created by the artists. A fictional subculture cannot be co-opted by the cultural (capital) industry, meaning its defining characteristics can remain intact. But this creates the question; If a subculture has never been part of society and, therefore, has never had the opportunity to resist or deviate from the mainstream, does that make it more or less authentic? If its politics, values and aesthetic do not come from real-world experiences does that make them culturally valueless or are they a pure form of authenticity? In such a vacuum is this culture priceless or worthless? Attempting to explore but not necessarily answer this question, this night is a celebration of a subculture that will never exist outside this context.
