Ultimate Fantasies is a project exploring the force of desire, by London-based writer, Jennifer Boyd and designer, Ruta Dumciute. They will be in residence at Guest Projects, London in June 2018.
What happens when desire - in the widest sense - is permanently inhabited, rather than a quick gesture or quashed longing towards a thing or person or life that you want? For example, Kembra Pfahler’s transformation of her rented apartment in the East Village, NY in which she covered all objects, walls and furniture in the same cosy, innard-red paint.
This project understands the force of desire as a non-normative notion of total commitment. The room will grow and spread like mycelium, building an uncompromising, raw language, over the course of one month. Through sculpture and space, writing in sound, the room will become the final aphrodisiac.
Jennifer Boyd is a writer working in text and sound who has been published in Afterall, After Us and SALT. and recently released ‘A Theory for the Strange-Girl: Raw Red Text’ with COUNTRY MUSIC, as well as producing the writing for a duo of books: ‘Skinned’ and ‘Detouched’ by Alice Channer.
Ruta Dumciute is a designer working within and outside the boundaries of interiors, whose projects include ‘Post-Gender Salon’, and the collaborations ‘Abandoned Laundrette’ at Balfron Tower for the London Festival of Architecture, and ‘Packing Room’ a recent installation for the London Design Festival. Their collaboration arose through shared interests including the history of underground clubbing and the putrefaction of dominant expectations.
