Heavy on the freak and queer theory, Filth is Glamour humanises taboo by exploring the boundaries of sex and gender norms, fertility and female wisdom. The body is othered, alien and planetary glitching in transmission. It’s reassembled, monstrous under oozing and dripping slime; assholes develop eyes; flesh merges to static response; and sexually charged figures spasm and pulse within blooming petals. The anus is a mirror to these cosmic bodies in segmented flux, potent with power, a solar object and star to guide our ascension.
