A quest for truth in the name of progress.

"i already told you , i don't remember!"

The gallery is based on a futile search for Greatness. Inspired by Linda Nochlin’s essay
‘Why have There been No Great Women Artists’;Foulcault's ‘Will To Knowledge’; Nietzsche’s Genealogy Of Morals’, and Bas Jan Arder’s ‘I am too sad to tell You’.

The paintings ,videos, archives and photos are a by product of a process which embraces serendipity , accident, chance and the will to power .The project is an excavation into the past which seeks to discover the elusive secret , the process which goes into making men great……in this it is doomed to fail. …and so it embraces the futile. As did Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein .

Most likely but probably in another form, possibly. Either way, her driving force was her mother's 'feminist' legacy no doubt. I don't think we should forget that ...

Have to say this is a terrible image...and so awful that research on animals is continued...I wish for the day when this type of testing is absolete.

Animal Experiments:
I have to say this is a terrible image of the monkey wired-up to the test apparatus...
I wish for the day to come (quickly) when animal testing will be a thing of the past.

Hunman Race progress has been at the expensive of so many natural resources and the natural animal population...this is a very sad fact but true. I also appreciate that until science becomes more sophisticated that animals will be innocent victims. I love all animals and feel quite upset to see and have the knowledge of such torture inflicted on the animals because of requirements of human progress. Just my thoughts on the subject. Fiona
