GASH LAND IS ACCEPTING NEW CITIZENS – APPLY HERE
I am Kayleigh O’Keefe: Glorious Leader of Gash Land, Flabzilla, Pervert Siren and Physical Gape Practitioner. I use live art and film to engage with themes of sexuality, body acceptance and non-assimilationist social assertion.
In January 2015 I created Gash Land, a cuntry existing in the collective imagination of its inhabitants; a collaborative safe space created in response to being slut shamed at a sexual health clinic. With 286 gashproved citizens our fledgling cuntry has developed its own culture, language and rituals. We promote the values of Gash Land through performances, screenings, online presence and (inter)actions that feed back in to the fabric of our land. This work consciously blurs the boundaries of art and life in order to provoke and challenge. I am exploring and mapping the boundaries and intersection of reality and the imaginary.
