Marseille

I undertook a two month residency in November 2020 at Triangle France – Astérides, Marseille. While there I was focused on writing and trying to work ‘in camera’. I was particularly exploring the figure of ‘The Pig’. This included the idea of the chemsex gay pig, the pig as a police officer, the pig as a farm animal, the pig in relation to feminist critiques of meat consumption, the pig as cartoon character, the pig as too much, and greedy for pleasure, and the recurring motif of the pig in Claude McKay’s Romance in Marseille.
