Companions is an exhibition that is rooted in the Feminist Library. Open since 1975 and recently relocated to Peckham, South London, the Library is a large archive collection of feminist literature, and an autonomous, intersectional, trans-inclusive, non-sectarian community space for the exploration of feminism.
At Forum Box Gallery, the Mobile Feminist Library becomes an expanded concept, combining mobility and collective practice to cultivate counter-patriarchal bodies and systems of knowledge. Haukka and Luke have used this as their framework for inviting a group of Finnish and UK based artists to create a feminist base for reflection, learning and dreaming.
The exhibition elicits different associations with the word companion: books, friends, partners, animals, plants, travelling – their absences during the pandemic, and longing for them. The works displayed will embody or act as traces of these relationships.
